Cooper Green Hospital and the Community Care Plan HSA 599: Health Services Administration Capstone Abstract Cooper Green Mercy Hospital and the Community Care Plan provide a valuable service to the indigent population of Jefferson County. Blewett, Ziegenfuss, and Davern (2008) stated: The United States’ health care system has traditionally relied on safety net providers to meet the health care needs of people who do not have health insurance or who may have some coverage but still face financial barriers to getting the health care they need.

Without rural and low income urban physicians, health care dollars are spent in larger cities, in more
Community health is not limited to improving outcomes of an individual suffering from a particular disease or illness, but concentrates on the improvement of the community as a whole. In public health nursing, the community rather than an individual becomes the client. Although individuals make up the community and nurses may assist individuals, priorities remain focused on the health care needs and outcomes of the community as a whole.
