HELPING CUMBERLAND COUNTY SINCE 2009
In April 2009, a group of community stakeholders began meeting to address the needs of the uninsured residents of Cumberland County. They formed what is now known as Cumberland HealthNET (CHN), a collaborative network of community organizations with a primary focus of improving the health outcomes for the uninsured by linking them with a medical home and other needed health and community services.
Through its collaboration with seventeen (17) other county and community organizations, Cumberland HealthNET seeks to improve access to care for the uninsured, improve coordination of services, provide needs assessments, identity overlaps and gaps in the services provided, provide community education and resources, advocate on behalf of the uninsured, and leverage and develop outside financial resources to support the work in Cumberland County.
The mission of Cumberland HealthNET is to create a coordinated system of care for the uninsured residents of Cumberland and surrounding counties, resulting in healthier residents with a better quality of life.
