Community Outreach

At Frederick Health, our mission is to positively impact the well-being of every individual in our community.

To stay true to this mission, our efforts reach far beyond the front doors of our buildings and include partnerships with many community organizations.

With support from Frederick Health and the Frederick County Health Department, the Frederick County Health Care Coalition conducts a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) every three years. The CHNA provides assistance to identify the current health status of community residents, sharing critical information that enables us to take positive steps that will impact the health of area residents.

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.

The 2019 Community Health Needs Assessment found that the most critical areas of need in Frederick County were:

  • Managing chronic health conditions
  • Addressing behavioral and infant health needs
  • Preventing adverse childhood experiences
