Health Education

Floyd Memorial’s Healthier Community Initiative (HCI) is a collaboration between Southern Indiana community leaders and Floyd Memorial Hospital. Funded by the Floyd Memorial Foundation, the HCI strives to create health and well-being to the region by providing screenings, prevention and education programs to more than 10,000 community residents annually.

In 2004, the Floyd Memorial Foundation donated the Health Express, a 36ft. medical mobile unit which enables the hospital to take its health and wellness efforts on the road to outlying counties and events. The Health Express is fully-equipped with screening areas, a physical therapy assessment table, six hearing booths and a DOT-regulated bathroom facility.

In addition to its outreach programs, Floyd Memorial houses the Paris Health Education Center: a multi room facility with a fully-equipped teaching kitchen. The Center hosts health-related community programs, screening events and support groups.
