Community Impact

As the region’s trusted healthcare provider, serving and improving the health of our community members is central to everything we do at Carle. Our commitment to the community reflects our mission to serve by delivering world-class care, conducting impactful medical research and training the providers and caregivers of tomorrow. As part of our dedication to improving the health of the people we serve, we are constantly collaborating with other providers, research and teaching organizations, community organizations and policymakers to expand access to programs and resources to address issues affecting the health and well-being of our community members.

Our Commitment in Action

Through our Community Health Initiatives (CHI), Carle is working closely with our area partners to address the root causes of health concerns facing the people we serve.  In 2020, Carle CHI worked diligently on a new collaboration with the Housing Authority of Champaign County (HACC) to bring safe and affordable housing opportunities to families in need.  Carle transferred ownership of three Urbana homes, and donated $150,000 for renovations, to the HACC for the project. The partnership created a safe, secure spaces for those most in need to call home.  Additionally, the Carle Mobile Health Clinic brings the same world-class care found at Carle locations to members of the community, right where they live. The 40-foot clinic travels weekly throughout Champaign, Urbana, and the entire Carle Health service area to provide non-urgent care for infants through adults, joining forces with neighborhoods, schools, churches and other community partners. In 2020, the Mobile Health Clinic expanded from 13 to 15 locations where services are provided. The Mobile Health Clinic was in service 185 days and completed 1,441 visits. Together with our partners, we’re building a culture of health and creating opportunities for families to be prosperous and be healthy, regardless of life circumstances.
