Community Health Needs Assessment


A Comprehensive Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) provides the general public and policy leaders with data and information on the health status of the population and existing resources to address health issues. The following documents summarize the 2013 CHNA study conducted in collaboration with the Partnership for a Healthy Community (Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola), the Walton County Health Improvement Partnership and the Florida Department of Health-Walton County (Sacred Heart Hospital on the Emerald Coast), and the Florida Department of Health-Gulf County (Sacred Heart Hospital on the Gulf), and the Bay County Community Health Task Force (Bay Medical Center) as well as the plans for Sacred Heart Health System to sustain and develop new community benefit programs that address prioritized needs from the study.
