Assessing and Improving Community Health in Wisconsin

Cumberland Memorial Hospital

Implementation Approaches

In 2015, plans were made to open a new Behavioral Health Unit. We realize the correlation between behavioral health issues and alcohol, tobacco and drug use and we are hoping to help combat this issue in Barron County.

Cumberland Healthcare will assist the community by getting to the root of our patients’ issues through providing counseling services.

Smoking Cessation Classes: Cumberland Healthcare is committed to helping residents quit smoking through the “Kickin’ Butts” smoking cessation classes. These free classes are held once a year and are open to the public. Kickin’ Butts is a five-week class, taught by an ex-smoker and trained Cumberland Healthcare staff member.

First Breath Tobacco Cessation Program: Additionally, a goal of the ATODA Community Action Team of Thrive Barron County is to reduce the number of pregnant women who report smoking. To combat this, we are offering the First Breath Tobacco Cessation Program to pregnant women at our facility.

Know Your Numbers Health Fair: Cumberland Healthcare has been offering the Know Your Numbers Health Fair (KYN) every May to the community for over ten years. The Know Your Numbers Health Fair includes free health screenings, completed through a simple blood draw, health information, breakfast and giveaways.

Worksite Wellness: Cumberland Healthcare is also working on creating better mental health for our employees through our employee wellness program. Our Wellness Committee is continuously coming up with new programs and activities for our employees, including wellness challenges, poker walks, free chair massages, painting classes, yoga classes and much more. We will monitor the stress and wellbeing of our employees through our annual Employee Satisfaction Survey.

Excel with Be Well Worksite Wellness program: This is a county-wide worksite wellness program that assists worksites in developing best practices for employee wellness. This group meets quarterly and includes a speaker that gives tips about various wellness issues, including mental health. This will assist Cumberland Healthcare with developing more programs for its employees.
