Education and Community Health at USA Health

As the only academic hospital in the region, our mission is to serve the medical community as well as patients by sharing our continued advancements in medicine through education and cutting-edge treatments.

About Education and Community Health

Within USA Health University Hospital, Mitchell Cancer Institute and Children’s & Women’s Hospital, we offer support groups, education classes and health assessments. By providing these resources, our goal is to assist patients and their loved ones in the prevention as well as treatment of myriad health concerns that are often diagnosed but require more than a typical treatment plan. We also offer our physicians, nurses, therapists, technicians and other staff members the opportunity to continue their education through courses, trainings and research at every stage of their careers.

Community Health

At USA Health, the needs of our community always remain at the forefront. In 2017, we conducted research and data analysis across stakeholders and residents of the Mobile area in order to identify and prioritize needs and, ultimately, improve the health of the community.
