Community Health Needs Assessment

Saint Thomas Health conducts a community health needs assessment in each of its communities every three years, to provide an understanding of the state of health and the social factors contributing to and influencing health in the area. We then respond to the identified community health priorities through our Community Health Improvement and Outreach Programs, outlined every three years in an implementation strategy that ensures our work within our communities is aligned with community needs and our mission as Saint Thomas Health.

This work is enacted through a two-pronged approach. First, we design and support community health programs, leveraging unique areas of expertise across the Saint Thomas Health system to impact areas of community health need. Second, we identify other organizations that bring complementary expertise to the priority areas, and we partner in their work to improve community health. Please visit our Community Programs and Community Partners web pages to explore this work further.
