Community Outreach Programs of AMH
Outreach is defined as an activity of providing services to any population who might not otherwise have access to these services. Outreach is often meant to fill in the gap in the services provided by mainstream services and more often is carried out by non-profit, nongovernmental organizations.
If this is the criteria for Community Outreach, American Mission Hospital is no stranger to fulfilling this social responsibility. The pioneers of the hospital who landed on these shores, through their generous spirit and willingness to be involved became a natural extension of the community. They provided medical help and hope where there was previously none.
Though American Mission Hospital continued their philanthropic approach to medical services, it was again only in 2004 that the Community Outreach Program was re-launched with a aim of reaching out to the less privileged masses.
Since 2004, American Mission has conducted innumerable Community related events with the aim of creating a better and healthier society. AMH believes that the key to enhance the health of people in the community is through educational awareness. With this in mind, many of the outreach programs not only include medical checks but educational awareness lectures and presentations.
American Mission Hospital has worked with corporate organizations, labor camps, rehabilitation centers, special needs centers, schools, social centers and orphanages to name a few. Special programs centering around breast cancer and other medical conditions are held regularly throughout the kingdom.
