Mission & Values
Community Hospital Mission Statement
"JCH will provide people-focused primary care-plus,
stressing preventative services and public accountability."
Not only is JCH committed to a strong base of primary
care services, but also to bring to the community those secondary specialties
which can reasonably and responsibly be offered in the convenience and safety
of the local setting,
JCH comes from a tradition of "going the second mile" for
all who come to our doors. Today, we are
rededicated to that tradition in all that it means in the "Information

and the Public.
Prevention and early detection are a vital part of Jersey

opportunity and leadership to the Community in wellness education, health
screenings, and lifestyle management.
