Community Health Needs Assessment | Norton Healthcare Louisville, Ky.

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 2019 Community Health Needs Assessment identified the following areas of significant health needs in our community:

  • Drug Use
  • Obesity
  • Smoking/Tobacco Use
  • Mental Health
  • Poor Nutrition
  • Uninsured/Limited Insurance
  • Access to Care
  • Lack of Primary Care Physicians/Hours
  • Lack of Specialty Care Providers
  • Coordinated Care Across the Continuum
  • Uninsured/Limited Insurance
