Cincinnati Children’s cares about the health of all children in the community, not just those who might need care within the hospital.
The medical center’s 2020 strategic plan calls for the hospital to lead, advocate and collaborate to measurably improve the health of local children and reduce health disparities in targeted population. This is why working with the entire community for ways to create a healthier community is so important to Cincinnati Children’s.
We know this is possible only if we connect with community partners. Together we intend to focus on health issues across the neighborhoods we serve to better understand the causes and draw on the most effective and innovative ideas within the community to improve health.
In collaboration with the James M. Anderson Center for Health Systems Excellence, Community Relations is leveraging resources and partnerships that address conditions that are most prevalent in the community.
We share a commitment with families, children, leaders and partners within our community to:
- Reduce Infant Mortality and prematurity
- Develop a highly effective primary care system that is connected and integrated with the community
- Improve kindergarten readiness and third grade reading
- Address social influences of health in two neighborhoods – Avondale and Price Hill
