Parkview Whitley Hospital Community Health Improvement
Parkview Whitley Hospital's Community Health Improvement Program funds community health improvement efforts within the service area of Parkview Whitley Hospital. The hospital sets aside 10 percent of its net income annually to fund community health initiatives.
Parkview Whitley Hospital gives back to the community in the form of improved facilities, education and outreach programs, free and discounted care, volunteerism and much more.
Parkview Whitley Hospital is reaching out to make our neighborhoods and communities healthier.
Parkview's mission includes caring for people who can't afford to pay. Each year the hospital provides thousands of dollars in charity care to the community. The hospital places its priority on providing the necessary care, not on who is going to pay the bill.
Community Health Improvement Initiatives
Primary Health Care Access
- Parkview Whitley Hospital's Medication Assistance Program (MAP)
The Medication Assistance Program was developed in response to a growing need in the community for financial assistance with prescription medications. MAP partners with patients, physicians, pharmaceutical companies and local pharmacies to provide medication assistance at little or no cost to qualified individuals. Assistance takes the form of an emergency voucher program for short-term medication needs and help with applying for long-term assistance through Pharmaceutical Assistance programs. For more information, call (260) 248-9263.
- Health Screening and Prevention and Disease Management
Parkview Whitley Hospital participates in numerous health fairs and activities throughout the year to provide health education, health screenings for disease prevention, and to promote healthy lifestyles. The hospital also provides support groups to assist patients and families in managing disease.
- CPR Training
A CPR Training Campaign was undertaken in 2006 by Parkview Whitley Hospital to provide free "Family and Friends" CPR classes. The classes are provided by hospital EMS staff. Classes also can be scheduled to be held at churches, businesses, organizations and civic groups in Whitley County. To register for a class or for more information, call (260) 248-9351 or send an e-mail to email@example.com.
