Community Activities

Community health and wellness is a priority at Community Medical Center.

CMC’s ongoing work is to provide educational and health activities for hospital staff and community members.

Goals: Partnering with businesses, schools, churches, parents, youth and retirees to promote and initiate health and well-being programs.

Studies show when partnerships are formed, active involvement begins and engaged community resources are utilized, it results in improved health, wellness and quality of life!
