Healthy Community Initiative Helps Makes Nebraska City the Best


Nebraska City, Neb., has been named the best community in the state by the Nebraska Community Improvement Program, and the Healthy Community Initiative led by St. Mary's Hospital is a key reason why. The selection committee for the Otto Hoiberg Award cited the Healthy Community Initiative, funded in part by Catholic Health Initiatives' Mission and Ministry Fund, as an example of teamwork in the community and a key factor in the award.
