In an effort to increase the health and wellness of the community, the Community Outreach Department provides a comprehensive schedule of health programs and services. These community benefits programs include health education seminars and screenings for blood pressure, blood glucose, cholesterol, dental, eye, podiatric, pediatric, bone densitometry, prostate cancer screening, diabetes education, and other wellness programs.

To maximize the effectiveness of the community benefit programs, Community Outreach partners with many community and faith-based organizations, health clinics and schools. Collaborations optimize resources, assets, and skills to achieve shared goals in meeting the needs of the community. Collaborative partners help East Orange General Hospital reach out to a diverse community to provide tools for self-empowerment and wellness.

Outreach Programs & Services Include:

  • Health Fairs - Spring & Fall
  • Diabetes Education Program - lectures and healthy eating workshops
  • Health Screenings
  • Senior Services
  • Project Screenings & Outreach Unified Program (S.O.U.P.) – screenings are offered to community members who use local identified food and/or ‘soup’ kitchens for the targeted health conditions when they come in for food pantry distributions and/or ‘soup’ kitchen meals. Any patient who inquires of any additional social or medical navigation services is worked with on a one-to-one basis.
