A Planetree certification is more than a gold stamp next to our logo. The certification is an achievement and recognition of CMH’s culture of person-centered care, which encourages us to strive to provide excellent care to our patients and their loved ones, our caregivers, and our community.
Caring for you and your loved ones
At CMH, you are cared for as an individual with unique preferences, goals and experiences. You are the center of your health care team, so we collaborate with you to help you reach your health care goals.
CMH’s person-centered care includes the ability to review your chart, aroma and massage therapies, pet therapy visits, delicious and comforting food, and healing spaces indoors and out. We also have open visiting hours and a care partner program that empowers your loved ones to be a part of the care team while you’re in the hospital.
Patient feedback is vital to improving CMH. Out Patient Family Advisory Council (PFAC) meets monthly with hospital caregivers to share their thoughts and collaborate on improvement projects.
Caring for our staff
Our caregivers make CMH excellent. We are committed to making CMH a “best place to work.” We have worked to improve caregiver benefits while decreasing the cost to them and to incorporate their feedback when making policy changes. “Be well CMH” is an employee wellness program to help caregivers and their families live happier and healthier lives.
