Building Community Health Outside of the Hospital

As a not-for-profit, independent hospital, CMH is committed to providing excellence, leadership and compassion in the enhancement of health for those we serve. The annual Community Benefits Report is an opportunity for CMH to share just a handful of the ways it helps to enhance the health of our neighbors in the Lower Columbia Region.

Community benefit takes many forms. It’s providing concussion testing, taping classes and the services of a certified athletic trainer to area high schools at no cost to schools or athletes. It’s hosting public seminars about heart health, joint replacement surgery and other health concerns. It’s sponsoring local arts, athletic events, community events and charitable organizations. It’s covering the cost of medical care for neighbors who can’t pay.

CMH’s community benefits programs promote health and help us to be an asset to our communities. CMH is a community benefit leader among Oregon hospitals.

Through programs and donations, health education, free and discounted care, and more, CMH provided more than $22.2 million in community benefits in 2015.
