Community Health Needs Assessment

Part of our mission is to meet the health needs of the communities we serve. In order to fulfill that mission, we periodically conduct a Community Health Needs Assessment. This allows us to ensure programs and resources are focused on the significant health needs faced by our community and that they align with our strategic priorities.

The 2016 Community Health Needs Assessment identified the following areas of significant health needs in our community:

  • Access to care
  • Cancer
  • Children’s health
  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Lack of primary care providers/hours
  • Obesity
  • Senior health and chronic health care needs
  • Smoking/tobacco use
  • Stroke
