Community Health Needs Assessment

In 2016, Somerset Hospital conducted a county-wide Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA). The study was conducted to identify the most important health issues which need to be addressed.

The CHNA looks at health status, barriers to care, and other demographic and social issues affecting people and organizations throughout Somerset County. The report is aimed at assisting Somerset Hospital in making decisions about the future of healthcare and prevention. Over the next several months, Somerset Hospital will be working on ideas to improve health challenges associated with these health concerns.
