Community Health

Dedicated to improving the health of individuals in our community.

ChristianaCare Community Health, in the Office of Health Equity, is dedicated to improving the health of community members across the First State. This is achieved by:

  • Connecting the community to available and appropriate health care services
  • Providing health and wellness education
  • Leading and participating in community-based research

Community Health integrates community health services with primary care and collaborates with a variety of partners within ChristianaCare, the Wilmington community, State of Delaware and national organizations.

Community Health also helps to inform policy makers and community leaders about local health challenges, evaluates the effectiveness of interventions and serves as a focus for evidence-based practices that improve the health and overall quality of life for our neighbors.
