Community Wellness Program

Community Wellness Program

Samaritan Health Services' Community Wellness Program is committed to increasing community capacity to promote health and wellness through education, communication and technical assistance in Benton, Lincoln and Linn counties.

Three of Samaritan Health Services' five affiliated hospitals are designated as rural facilities. We focus on building healthier communities in collaboration with our local community partners.

The Community Wellness Program can assist and empower rural community groups at a grassroots level by:

  • Facilitating access to resources, educational and training opportunities through one-on-one mentoring, group training and community events.
  • Connecting community members across the tri-county region who share a common health-related vision.
  • Assisting with health promotion program planning and the process of applying for grant funds.

Interested in collaborating? Samaritan's Community Wellness Program can provide technical assistance and trainings. Contact Emily McNulty, Community Wellness Coordinator, at emcnulty@samhealth.org or 541-768-7307.
