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!

Current resources for community exercise implemented or sponsored by CMC are the following:
