Week 3 Discussion: Agencies and Who They Serve
For this discussion, review the various healthcare settings in your reading (such as hospital, community health center, etc.) and select one. Once selected, research the internet to identify a facility that represents your selected healthcare delivery setting. Review their website and determine:
Location and size
Mission and values
Accreditation and awards
How long they have been serving their target population
Whether they are part of a system or a single institution
Are they for profit or not-for profit
The target populations they serve
The clinical and client services they provide
The type of staff who work in the setting
Contributions to the community
In a two to three paragraph discussion post, identify key aspects of the selected healthcare setting, how their mission and values compare with the services they provide and their target populations, the type of staff who work there, any special or unique aspects of the healthcare setting, and your impression of the healthcare setting after reviewing their website. You don’t need to identify the name of the healthcare setting just the type.
