Union Hospital’s Community Benefits program collaborates with stakeholders inside and outside the hospital on a variety of programs, community projects, grants, education, and other health outreach-related activities. Information and learning materials from these collaborations are shared here.

Cecil County Million Hearts Initiative – Resources

Cecil County was 1 of 4 counties awarded a Million Hearts grant by Maryland’s Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DHMH) and the Association of State and Territorial Health Officers (ASTHO) to help Maryland prevent 1 million heart attacks and strokes by 2017.

This grant is facilitated by the Cecil County Health Department and is supported by a number of community partners, including West Cecil Health Center, community churches, EMS & paramedics, Cecil County Public Schools, and Union Hospital.

The Community Resource Inventory shared here provides community resources that address the risk factors associated with heart disease.

Printable flyers are also available for your use.
