We believe a healthy community goes beyond the walls of our hospital. That’s why MCMC has a long history of community engagement throughout the Columbia River Gorge. By building partnerships with community groups, health care organizations, civic leaders and our local residents, we can better understand and respond to the needs of our community.

A Spirit of Collaboration

The organizations listed below joined together to create the first integrated Columbia Gorge Regional Community Health Assessment. Together, we have been able to combine social and economic conditions with key healthcare information to build a prioritized set of needs for the region and identify unique needs in specific locations or populations.

  • Columbia Gorge Health Council
  • Hood River County Health Department
  • Klickitat Valley Health
  • Klickitat Valley Health Department
  • Mid-Columbia Center for Living
  • Mid-Columbia Medical Center
  • North Central Public Health District
  • One Community Health
  • PacificSource Community Solutions
  • Providence Hood River Memorial Hospital
  • Skyline Hospital

Our collaborative work and, more importantly, our harmonized voice on the highest overall needs for our region are reflected in the Columbia Gorge Regional Health Assessment.

In response to these identified needs, MCMC has developed a Community Benefit Report & Health Improvement Plan. We have also established 2023- 2025 Key Community Benefit Initiatives.

To read about Adventist Health’s commitment to the community here is their 2022 Community Impact Report.
