FirstHealth Community Health Services assesses community
needs and responds to those needs through programs
and services that extend beyond the hospital walls.
With the understanding that those with the greatest
health needs in our region are often uninsured or have
limited access and resources, Community Health
Services places a special emphasis on reaching these
populations through quit
tobacco programs and programs
designed to help people live healthier lives.
Community Health Services has programs to meet the
health needs of children, including school health and
day care programs, community gardens, walk-to-school
events and efforts designed to prevent childhood injury.
To carry out this work effectively, Community Health
works in partnership with other organizations in the
region and continuously seeks funding from both public
and private sources to initiate and expand these efforts.
