Covenant Releases Annual Community Report

LUBBOCK, TX- Covenant Health announced today its 2021 Annual Report to Our Communities. 2021
was an extraordinary year marked by three major surges in COVID-19 volumes, a national shortage of
health care personnel, as well as deferrals of non-emergent care. Even with these tremendous
challenges, Covenant Health continued to invest in our communities across West Texas and eastern
New Mexico, guided by our community benefit priorities.
This annual report shares stories about the ways we responded to the pandemic and served with
compassionate care and health excellence. Across our region, activities focused on meeting the
diverse needs of our neighbors, frequently working with local partners to make a measurable
difference. Our teams also found new and more equitable ways to bring needed care and services to
our communities.
“Health care is changing at a rapid pace and Covenant Health is working to continue serving our
community in the ways the Sisters asked of us over 100 years ago, serving as a voice for those who
need us the most,” said Walter L. Cathey, Regional Chief Executive of Covenant Health. “While health
care is changing, the core of what we do will stay the same– caring for our patients will remain a top
priority. We will continue to focus on people and quality of care for the communities we serve. We will
work to improve the ease of navigating health care and the Covenant network for our patients.”
Tavia Hatfield, Regional Director of Community Heath Investment said, “Together, over 6,000
caregivers throughout our region will continue to be a voice for those who need us most by working on
changing health care delivery as we know it and continuing to strive for improved wellness in our
communities through focused outreach to the most vulnerable populations.” Hatfield added, “our
caregivers have worked to find ways to best address and prioritize our region’s most challenging needs
for our under-served populations.” Those areas of focus include: 

  • Access to care 
  • Mental and behavioral health
  • Homelessness and housing 
  • Food insecurity 

Together, this is our path forward – working to make health and wellness a priority for all communities
touched by our ministries. Covenant Health is a place where all are invited, and all belong. For over 100
years, we have cared deeply about the health of our community because it’s our home too.
