“The Community Health Action Center launches Oakwood’s community-facing phase of our nationally-recognized Healthy Campus 2020 campus wellness initiative. Our event today underscores our Healthy Campus, Healthy Community commitment to our community. This vision began with a request from yours truly to the CEO of Huntsville Hospital to consider a partnership with Oakwood in order to transform the health outcomes of Northwest Huntsville. Oakwood University has been in the Huntsville community for 125 years and so has Huntsville Hospital. Together, we plan to bring health and healing to the morbidities affecting the citizens of NW Huntsville. The partnership today between Huntsville Hospital and Oakwood University is designed to improve the health status underserved citizens of the city of Huntsville,” said Oakwood University President Dr. Leslie Pollard. We look forward to our Grand Opening during the first week of June 2021,” he continued.
