Nursing & Community Health Services
Director - Radi Ann Porter, RN
The mission of the Nursing & Community Health Services Division is to promote and protect the health of Cochise County residents by providing quality health care. This is accomplished through clinics, screening programs, home visits consultations and other procedures, which not only provide care but also educate the public to the practice of good health.
The Philosophy of our division is based on the dignity and value of the individual, the family unity and the place of each other in society. We believe that each person and each family has the right to attain optimal personal fitness and to participate as fully as possible in the gift of life as a member of the Cochise County Community. Therefore, we believe that each one is entitled to receive effective nursing care and assistance based on his or her needs and the guidelines of the Cochise County Board of Supervisors.
Since professional community-orientated nursing is also prevention orientated, we share the responsibility of promoting health, preventing disease, and establishing a sense of health and well being within the community. This belief directs us to seek every opportunity to advance the health knowledge of both staff and clients by every available means. Hence, while providing care, we advance knowledge by instruction and example. This leads to our goal of optimal health for all clients within Cochise County.
