Community Health Needs Assessment
Understanding the current health status of the community is important in order to identify priorities for future planning and funding, the existing strengths and assets on which to build upon, and areas for further collaboration across organizations, institutions, and community groups.
Greenwich Hospital, as part of the Greenwich Community Health Improvement Partnership and the Council of Community Services, recently completed its 2016 community health needs assessment process. This included the development of a comprehensive Community Health Improvement Plan to address the major unmet needs in the Greenwich area.
The Greenwich Community Health Improvement Partnership – a coalition of hospitals, departments of public health, federally qualified health centers, and numerous community and non-profit organizations serving Greenwich – led a process to assess the health needs of community, as part of a larger goal of measurably improving the health and wellbeing of its residents. The partnership also worked with the Council of Community Services, a coalition serving Port Chester, Rye Brook and Rye Town.
