Community Health Improvement

Community Health Needs Assessment & Improvement Plan

In 2021, Van Wert Health undertook a community health needs assessment (CHNA), which is the activity and end-product of identifying and prioritizing the community's health needs. We did this by talking to community and hospital stakeholders, analyzing relevant public health and hospital data, and seeing where we could make the most impact in our neighborhoods and county.

2021 Community Health Needs Assessment

    A primary component of creating a healthy community is assessing and prioritizing the needs for impact, and then addressing those needs. Based on the Community Health Needs Assessment in 2021, the Implementation Strategy focuses on three priority areas:

    • Nutrition and physical activity
    • Access to care
    • Mental health and addition
