MaineHealth is committed to the vision of “working together so our communities are the healthiest in America.” Our newly released reports on community health are helping us get there. Findings from the reports are helping MaineHealth and our hospital members better understand health needs and opportunities, so that we can provide the very best care in the communities we serve.
Each 2016 Community Health Needs Assessment report:
Provides county-level data on more than 150 health measures – such as rates for smoking, substance abuse, obesity, high blood pressure and childhood immunizations.
Summarizes conversations by diverse community stakeholders, who reviewed the data for their county and shared ideas to address pressing health needs
Offers a detailed, three-year action plan developed by each MaineHealth hospital member for improving public health in the communities we serve.
