Mon River Fleet
In 2004, state-endorsed SHIPS (State Health Improvement Plans) from neighboring McKeesport, Duquesne, Braddock and Hazelwood met to discuss ways to create collaborative, far-reaching health initiatives beyond their individual catchment areas. What resulted was the Mon River Fleet, (FLEET) an alliance of four SHIPS dedicated to seeking innovative ways to spread health care education and solutions throughout their communities. The Mon River Fleet
philosophy is to centralize best practice programming, and outcomes data collection, and to decentralize the dissemination of health care information motivating healthy change at the community level.
