What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Sojourns was founded in 2000 in response to the need for a change in how our culture views health and delivers healthcare. Our founders facilitated the realization of a truly integrated wellness-based health and educational center where patients and doctors consciously respect the wisdom of the body; patients actively participate in their healing; and integrated, multi-disciplinary practitioner teams deliver high-quality, affordable health care.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

1) Serve our 10,000 constituents with relevant content, products and services that sustain health and wellbeing.

2) Expand our visibility to elevate integrative medicine as the norm in healthcare delivery.

3) Achieve and maintain a balanced budget.

1) Conduct stakeholder interviews, focus groups and surveys to understand how our constituents perceive us and how we can best serve them.

2) Revise our mission statement and website; develop a stronger online presence that reflects our core values and offerings.

3) Partner with mission-aligned entities to facilitate models of integrative care across the country, and beyond.

4) Diversify and strengthen revenue streams to include major donors, an online store and course content.

We have a strong team of dedicated medical providers and support staff, situated in a region that recognizes naturopathic care as a valuable approach to health and well-being.

We have a leadership team committed to elevating integrative medicine as a normative model of care through partnerships and advocacy.

Sojourns has provided integrative care to the surrounding community for over 20 years.

We see approximately 4,000 patients per year and regularly serve a population suffering from Lyme disease or chronic conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis.

We recently launched a pilot program to study the impact of lifestyle and mental wellness on chronic illness, as well as an initiative to offer group medical visits to students suffering anxiety or depression.

Our providers offer courses on breathwork and nutritional cleanses, which we hope to expand in the near future.
