Commitment to the Community
As you drive down 26th Street and Roosevelt in Phoenix, it is impossible to miss the MIHS main campus. MIHS’s reach, however, extends far beyond the walls of the hospital and even further beyond the eye of the beholder.
Our reach extends into the community through awareness and education programs designed to keep people out of the emergency room. In 2015, MIHS planned and developed 35 public health fairs, bringing health information and screenings to nearly 10,000 participants.
The MIHS Community Outreach Department works to foster relationships between the healthcare system and our surrounding communities. Outreach and education programs are designed to target special needs groups in these areas. We understand that in order to further develop these bonds, we must be active. Members of the Community Outreach Department regularly attend community meetings and frequently participate as MIHS representatives to businesses and organizations. MIHS supports the well-being of the community through efforts focused on health, housing, economic development and public safety issues.
If your organization has a community event and would like to participate in our outreach programs, please contact the Community Outreach Department at 602-344-1841.
