Marion County Hospital District applies its mission by operating healthcare programs spanning five crucial healthcare areas.
To reduce obesity and related chronic diseases, we connect the community with education, nutrition, and life-stabilizing services that promote healthy lifestyles. Through programs like AMP, Fitness and Nutrition in Schools (FANS), and The Community Home Project (CHP) we approach this urgent issue from multiple angles. Other community partners include FANS and TLC.
Substance Use / Behavioral Health
At MCHD we strive to innovate the substance use and behavioral healthcare delivery system. We offer programs that optimize service delivery through metrics-based performance improvement practices, and treat the whole-person through integrating on-demand comprehensive behavioral health and medical care services for Marion County residents. Our community partners include SMA, Park Place, LifeStream, Life Counsel, Hands of Mercy Everywhere, Kimberly’s Center, Open Village, SADD-Children’s Alliance, Heart of Florida, and Beacon Point.
