The Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) summarizes the needs of communities in the Capital Region. The report provides local health departments and hospitals a broad array of health information that is used in determining and monitoring health planning, sets the stage for continuous improvement, and provides the information and research needed to create a Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) that measurably improves health in the community. Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback on Healthy Capital Districts Initiative’s Community Health.
