Community Health Strategy
Our 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
We generate positive community impact and address health outcomes resulting from underlying social determinants through local hiring, purchasing and investing. We adapted our 2020 programs in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to continue providing meaningful youth education experiences and community support while adhering to safety guidelines.
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 address identified emergent needs such as COVID-19, substance abuse and infant mortality.
