Beyond the inpatient care and outpatient services it provides to the community, Griffin Hospital has a history of community service and social responsibility dating back to its founding in 1909.
Community Health Needs Assessment
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act requires non-profit hospitals to perform a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) every three years and to adopt an implementation strategy to meet outstanding community health needs identified in the assessment as a condition of maintaining the institution’s federal tax exemption.
Valley Parish Nurse Program
Valley Parish Nurses serve as coordinators between the clergy, parish and resources in the community, such as hospitals and other social service agencies.
Mobile Health Resource Center
The Griffin Hospital Mobile Health Resource Van is a custom built Winnebago that travels to various locations throughout the Lower Naugatuck Valley, such as senior centers, shopping centers, neighborhoods, companies and community events and fairs.
