Serving Our Community.

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.

Community Outreach Opportunities

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.

Community Health Needs Assessment

With support from Frederick Health and the Frederick County Health Department, the Coalition for a Healthier Frederick County conducts a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) every three years.

This assessment helps identify the current health status of our community, sharing critical information that enables us to take positive steps that will impact the health of area residents.

The 2022 Community Health Needs Assessment identified the following three health improvement priorities, two* of which were continued from the prior CHNA cycle:

  • Adverse Childhood Experiences*
  • Diabetes* (a subgroup of the previous Chronic Disease workgroup)
  • Mental Health
