Community Health Improvement Plan
The purpose of the Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) is to identify how to strategically and collaboratively address community priority areas to improve the health and well-being of the community. Employees from Memorial Community Hospital and Health System (MCH&HS) utilized the assessment process to formulate a community health improvement plan aimed at striving to provide effective, quality health services, and an environment that enables community members to reach their full health potential through assessment, leadership, and partnerships.
MCH&HS works to Heal, Nurture and Promote Wellness to members in our community.
