The community relations department at Johns Hopkins Bayview works to establish and foster communication between the Medical Center and surrounding communities. The department interfaces with a broad range of non-profit, business and community organizations to support initiatives that improve the well-being of the community, addressing health, housing, economic development, transportation and safety issues with our community partners.
Members of the community relations staff regularly attend community meetings, actively participate on the Medical Center’s Community Advisory Board and serve as the driving force for the Community Health Action Project (CHAP). As a result, the staff facilitate health-related programs to meet community and patient needs.
The community relations department also plays an integral role in hospital policy development and represents Johns Hopkins Bayview with regard to legislative and regulatory concerns.
