Brevard County’s Community-Run Hospital
Parrish Healthcare’s family of services has been nationally recognized
for clinical quality, patient safety, patient’s hospital experience,
low cost and healing environments. It’s all been for one purpose:
to provide better healthcare for our community. We’re one of America’s
finest healing environments® and one of the safest.
These annual reports will tell you about the many ways we are fulfilling
our vision, mission and values. Nothing means more than seeing the joy
in the face of a person who has overcome illness or injury. Or a smile
shared by a patient’s family member. It’s why healthcare is
so rewarding to us. Modern medicine can create miracles. The professionals
of Parrish Healthcare see them every day in the faces of the people we serve.
Past Reports & Other Resources
You probably know us as the fundraiser for new programs and services at
Parrish Medical Center. But did you know that we also give back to the
community to a variety of organizations that help people of all ages?
In fact, some of the organizations that have received grants in the past
may be ones you support with your time and money.
We’re dedicated to supporting and enhancing healthcare outreach,
patient care, rehabilitation, and wellness services that contribute to
a better quality of life for citizens in North Brevard. That’s why
grants are awarded to community organizations whose purpose and mission
is consistent with—and supportive of—Parrish Medical Center.
Some recently awarded grants include:
Aging Matters in Brevard to help elderly and disabled individuals maintain independence and maximize
quality of life.
Children’s Home Society of Florida to purchase critical items or services not covered by insurance for pregnant
women or new mothers in North Brevard through the Healthy Start program.
North Brevard Charities Sharing Center for community wellness programs, such as emergency prescription medication
and dental assistance.
Smile Angel Foundation to distribute dental care packages and education materials to local students
during the 2nd annual North Brevard Back to School campaign.
Women and Children's Health Center to purchase clothing and food for victims of domestic violence who are
residing in the Titusville safe house.
Titusville YMCA for scholarship funds to support children and families who cannot afford
The JPMF Community Grants Committee meets four times a year to review applications.
Each year, grants totaling approximately $50,000 are awarded to assist
diverse North Brevard residents.
Throughout the year, PMC care partners share their knowledge and expertise
in the community at hospital-sponsored health events, health fairs, back-to-school
events, educational programs and with civic and faith-based groups. PMC
also works with other health and human services organizations in the county
to ensure our residents get the care they need, no matter their circumstances.
Because we are an independent, public hospital, we answer to the citizens
of North Brevard – not investors or shareholders. In fact, to make
decisions about the health priorities in which we invest our resources,
we use the results of a biennial community health needs assessment (conducted
every two years), input from a community health advisory board, and other
community health status sources.
Community Health Partnership
The CHP represents over 300 social service agencies. The members bring
together the most comprehensive group of social service, government and
education organizations in the area with the purpose of identifying, prioritizing,
and working collaboratively to solve community needs and issues that impact
health. Projects include improving access to dental care for the uninsured,
expanding application site for the Florida Food Assistance Program (SNAP),
and the Community Navigator Project.
