At PinnacleHealth we continually look for opportunities to help the community at large. 

The Keystone Community Care Continuum (KCCC) is a collaboration between PinnacleHealth System and five community clinics; Bethesda Mission, Community Check-Up Center, Hamilton Health Center, Hope Within, and the Kline Health Center. The focus is to improve access to and integration of care for the region’s neediest population, by reducing unnecessary emergency department use, increasing access to care, building capacity and performance of community clinics and enchaining coordination of care.



Eat Smart, Play Smart (formerly KidShape), is a weight management program for overweight children and their parents, will host classes on the East and West Shores. Eat Smart, Play Smart meets once a week and is a fun-filled program that helps overweight children (ages 6-14), accompanied by a parent or guardian, to become healthy. Eat Smart, Play Smart employs only degree, certified instructors in nutrition, mental health and physical education using interactive games, cooking demonstrations and minimal discussion to uncover habits, choices and learn how to make better ones in order to lead a healthy, productive life.  If a child's Body Mass Index (BMI) falls within the obese category, he or she qualifies for this program.

Cribs for Kids provides cribs to patients and families within the health system as providers identify needs, which could include infants from the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, the pediatric clinic, home visits from NFP and other areas. .

Nurse Family Partnership helps transform the lives of low income, first-time mothers, through home visitation services by nurses. Some low-income, first-time mothers require extra help and support during their pregnancies and the first years of their child’s life. To help vulnerable, at-risk families in our area, PinnacleHealth’s Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP) Program provides support, education and counseling on health, behavioral and self-sufficiency issues for new mothers. This voluntary program provides guidance to help ensure the health and well-being of both mother and baby.
