Community Health Needs Assessment
To increase the overall health and wellness of our community and to comply with new regulations in the Affordable Care Act, a local collaboration was formed amongst St. Mary’s Health, Deaconess Health System, ECHO Community Health Care, The United Way of Southern Indiana, Welborn Baptist Foundation and Vanderburgh County Health Department. This collaboration joined together to assess and identify the primary health needs of people living in our communities. The Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) is an assessment of the communities’ health status, barriers to care, and other demographic and social issues affecting our community. The assessment will help focus resources and drive change to support healthcare prevention.
