Engaging and Caring for Community

Posted online

“At Citizens Memorial Hospital we’re all about friends and family taking care of friends and family. We love supporting the communities in which we live and work,” says Jeremy MacLaughlin, director of human resources.

The mission of Citizens Memorial Hospital (CMH) is caring for every generation through exceptional services by leading physicians and a compassionate healthcare team. The vision of CMH is to be the first choice for customer-focused healthcare to every generation. 

“Working at Citizens Memorial isn’t just coming to work, it is about taking care of our patients and their families in the communities where we live and serve,” says MacLaughlin. “This culture was carefully created by incorporating our mission, vision, and core values into everything we do.”

CMH offers an employee health plan that includes vision and prescription drug coverage and a wellness program to help employees stop smoking, reduce stress, lose weight, or to improve their healthy lifestyle habits. CMH also provides employer-paid term life insurance policy and paid time off. CMH automatically contributes money to employees’ retirement accounts each year in addition to providing a more traditional matched savings plan for retirement. In order to keep investments current, co-workers have in-person access to investment advisers at no cost.

Community engagement is at the core of CMH culture. Free public education programs grow every year and include monthly cooking classes, lunch and learns, adult education programs, smoking cessation classes, health screenings and parenting classes. CMH encourages employees to be active, contributing members of their neighborhoods and communities.

Additionally, CMH hosts special pediatric sensory events at Christmas and Halloween for special needs children. CMH also offers community wellness programs including numerous support groups, healthy heart classes, heart screenings, cardiac wellness programs, diabetes education and nutrition classes, youth sports physicals, and affordable lab screenings at all CMH family medicine clinics.
