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.
