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. The Healthier Greater New Haven Partnership – a coalition of hospitals, departments of public health, federally qualified health centers, and numerous community and non-profit organizations serving the Greater New Haven, CT area – led a process to assess the health needs of the Greater New Haven community, as part of a larger goal of measurably improving the health and wellbeing of its residents.

Yale New Haven Hospital, as part of the Healthier Greater New Haven Partnership, 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 region.
