CRMC furthers its mission by promoting the health of the community through programs and activities that foster health, healing, and wellness. CRMC knows that much of what influences health happens outside of the hospital or doctor’s office – in our schools, workplaces, and neighborhoods. Just as its care teams devote themselves to meeting the needs of patients, CRMC is driven to address its specific community health needs with wellness screenings, health education, health fairs, and other community outreach. CRMC pro-actively recruits the physicians and specialists needed to meet the community’s healthcare needs and works hard to retain its medical staff. CRMC strives to know what kind of providers are going to be needed and then plans and allocates resources accordingly. The organization also assesses the demographics and practice patterns of current staff to show potential recruiting candidates that there is a need for their services.
CRMC is governed by a 10-member, non-profit Board of Directors. The Board’s primary responsibility is to assure the services provided by CRMC meet community standards, promote patient safety, and ensure the hospital is providing the highest quality of health care services to the communities CRMC serves. CRMC also has an 18-member District Board elected by residents of its communities.
