Community outreach is a big part of what we do at Nanticoke Health Services. But, we can’t do it alone. We partner with many organizations to reach out to the communities we serve.
Partners include individual other health care providers, volunteers, businesses, and other non-profit organizations. We are grateful to all those that support us in our mission to serve our community.
WORKING TOGETHER FOR A HEALTHIER SUSSEX
In 2012, an initiative was started known as the Healthier Sussex County Task Force. This group was initiated by the three CEO’s of the three hospitals in Sussex County – Nanticoke Health Services, Beebe Healthcare and Bayhealth – Milford. Together this group works with other area organizations to improve the health of the entire Sussex County community.
Healthier Sussex County hospitals work together to collect data from the community and other health care stakeholders for use in all the hospital Community Health Needs Assessments. The group also works together to use this data to focus on areas of need.
For 2016-2019, the Healthier Sussex County Task Force will be working on the following areas of need:
- Mental Health & Substance Abuse
- Obesity & Chronic Conditions
- Cancer – Lung Cancer Screening
- Cancer – Vaccination Education
