Community Health

Because healthy communities matter to everyone

Community Health – the faces of CHA

The essence of CHA is community. Our purpose is to improve everyone’s health and that begins with relationships with people like you who live and work in the communities where we provide care. CHA’s health services are integrated into the community through primary care, specialty care, programs and partnerships.

Our efforts are integral to improving health through a lens of justice and health equity.

  • Providing clinical care in your neighborhood
  • Working with the community to understand overall health status
  • Building knowledge in the community through collecting and sharing data
  • Serving as a community wheelhouse, connecting and convening resources
  • Taking action by initiating programs based on identified health needs and community engagement
  • Conducting academic research with physicians, interns and the community
  • Creating an environment where individuals can support their community health needs
