The Healthy Ontario Initiative (HOI-BH) focused on a five-mile radius within one of Ontario, California’s lowest income neighborhoods (which is served by the Ontario Montclair School District) with one of the highest emergency room readmission rates within San Antonio Regional Hospital’s service area. ​

Working together with the Healthy Eating, Active Living (HEAL) Zone Kaiser funded pilot project, the HOI-BH Project addressed the local obesity epidemic and associated ills, such as poverty, heart disease, and diabetes. HOI aimed to change Ontario systems and policy for long-term sustainability while expanding Health Hubs and environmental solutions across the City of Ontario.
