The Frederick County Health Care Coalition, with support from the Frederick County Health Department and Frederick Health, has developed a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA). This assessment provides data on the health of Frederick County residents and resources available to address health issues. Community members were invited to review the draft CHNA and provide feedback, with public comments submitted between April 1 - April 30, 2019.

Each year, Frederick Health receives hundreds of requests for community participation and sponsorships. Because of our not-for-profit status, we focus on the goals established through the Community Health Needs Assessment or emerging risks and needs. Our Community Benefits are primarily delivered through direct services such as free care, and we also invest in health education and resources for at risk individuals and groups representing vulnerable, underserved or uninsured populations within Frederick County.


It takes time to identify the appropriate resources and staffing needs for each opportunity. Please follow the guidelines below to be sure your event request is considered. Late or incomplete requests may cause additional delays.

  • If your request involves manpower, immunizations or screenings, it must be received at least 90 days prior to the event to schedule staff, obtain licenses, and arrange materials
  • All other requests for event support must be submitted at least 60 days prior to your event
  • Printed materials (if available) can be fulfilled within 30 days
