Community health strategy & innovation

UH is dedicated to serving diverse communities as Kansas City's only safety net hospital. We stay true to our commitment surrounding the accessibility of care, and lead the way in delivering healthcare outside the four walls of the hospital. UH's Community Health Strategies & Innovation (CHS & I) team provides a 360 degree approach to preventative health. Initiatives such as the Healthy Harvest Mobile Market and UH's Wellness Connections empower individuals to take charge of their health and develop healthy lifestyle changes. Additionally, our team manages numerous education programs with local school districts, expanding our activities as an academic medical center. In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, CHS & I led community testing in the hardest hit communities. As an extended arm of UH in the community, we serve on the frontlines in the hospital's mission to lead the way to a healthier community.
