Education and Community Health

There is more to parenting than meets the eye. Even if there is already one child in the family, there is always more to learn. USA Children's & Women's Hospital regularly provides classes on subjects that cover a range of family topics. Most classes are free or have a nominal fee to cover the cost of take-home materials. Be sure to plan ahead, classes are year-round.

Continuing education credits are available at CWH. Classes are open to our employees as well as to health care providers in our community. Call the Education Department to register: (251) 415-1685 or 3-1685.

Community Health

Community health needs assessment is both the activity and product of identifying and prioritizing a community's health needs, accomplished through the collection and analysis of data, including input from community stakeholders and residents. It can be used to inform the development of strategies and plans to address prioritized needs, with the goal of contributing to improvements in the community's health.

Community health needs assessment methods and characteristics can vary according to the size and nature of the community, the lead organization or partners and their goals, the resources available and other local factors.

During 2015, the University of South Alabama Medical Center, the University of South Alabama Children's & Women's Hospital, and the Mitchell Cancer Institute collaborated in conducting a community health needs assessment for Mobile County, Alabama.
