Clarke County Hospital works closely with other community organizations and health services in Clarke County. We are committed to collaborating with these organizations to deliver a continuum of quality care for our patients and community!
Clarke County Hospital would like to thank the Walmart Foundation for allowing the hospital to run nutritional health education programs in our community over the past year. CCH received a $31,000 grant from the foundation back in November 2015 which ended in November 2016.
The Walmart grant allowed CCH to reach over 715 people in Clarke County and in surrounding communities. The funding helped us run events which included our Better Choices, Better Health Program, a Latino Health Education Program partnered with the ISU Extension Office, many meal prep classes, free swim and healthy snack education. Those that received outreach received education, snacks/meals and/or handouts and take home items.
The grant also allowed us to purchase items and equipment for future community outreach events at the hospital. Call 641-342-5293 if interested in health education provided by CCH.
