Community Health Strategy
Our community health strategy (CHS) is based upon 3 main principles as we partner with our community based organizations to provide optimal opportunities for the communities in which we work, live and play to thrive.
- Responsive to local needs
- Creating a measurable improvement to well-being
- Providing lifelong engagement through educating, hiring and healing
The programs provided are all in alignment with the Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA), evidence-based and use the social determinants of health to deliver measurable impact. There are two overlapping and intertwined arms to the CHS which drive our programs in our four identified regions that represent all of our Hospitals and Family Health Centers in Northeast Ohio- east, west, central and south
Anchor Institution Initiatives
The Cleveland Clinic has adopted an Anchor mission strategy which is a place based approach to address health outcomes based upon underlying social determinants. The goal is to align resources such as hiring, purchasing and investing to create a larger impact in a given community.
Public Health Programs
As a healthcare institution, it is our mission to address and improve the overall health and wellbeing of our community. Our goal with the CHS is to measurably improve key health indicators that are prevalent based upon our CHNA priorities as well as identified emergent needs such as substance abuse and infant mortality.
