The Community Care Network (CCN) is a collaborative program between Wooster Community Hospital and The College of Wooster. The goals of the program are to promote wellness, reduce the need for potentially unnecessary procedures and hospitalizations, and promote delivery of evidence-based care.
CCN has established an interdisciplinary team comprised of a social worker/discharge planner, pharmacists, mental health provider, dietitian, nurse, and other disciplines as needed to meet and develop a plan of care that addresses the patient’s goals of a healthier lifestyle.
Patients are selected based on their desire to embrace a health change. Patients identified for this program are those who have had multiple hospitalizations, and/or potentially avoidable ER visits, and who have chronic diseases. Eligible participants may be identified during an acute care hospitalization, emergency department visit, or by physician referral.
It is anticipated that the patient will be enrolled in the program for a minimum of 15 weeks but it may be longer depending on the needs of the patient.
If anyone is interested in being a member of CCN, contact RN Alex Davis at (330) 263-8483.

Through our affiliation with Akron Children’s Hospital, we’re able to offer Wooster Community Hospital patients access to a Special Care Nursery, a Level II nursery in the WC Women’s Pavilion that significantly expands the neonatal care we can offer parents expecting preterm labor or a premature baby.
Health care providers from WCH and Akron staff the WCH Special Care Nursery, reducing the need for families to separate or travel long distances seeking the medical care they need during this critical period.
Wooster Community Hospital (WCH) and the Wooster Community Hospital Foundation are partnering with not-for-profit organization Whit’s End Community Place to provide free support services for fighters/survivors of cancer and their caregivers. This collaboration ensures that cancer fighter/survivors are not only given expert treatment for their illness, but that they and their caregivers receive compassionate care as people.
Under this partnership, a cancer support group usually meets on the first Thursday and third Tuesday of every month at 6:15 pm in the WCH auditorium. However, during COVID-19, Whit’s End is offering free teletherapy sessions with a licensed social worker.
Fighters/survivors of cancer or their caregivers can contact the program coordinator, Kat Little, at 330.287.2787 for more information.
