As part of its public advocacy efforts, the Hospital Council
brings hospitals together to collaborate on community health
needs assessments (CHNAs). Hospitals can be a catalyst to lead
the community in addressing the most pressing health needs. The
CHNAs provide a data-driven understanding of these needs, and
empowering hospitals to form coalitions with community partners,
government agencies, elected officials, civic groups and the
media, to address and improve community-wide health issues.
The Santa Clara County Community Benefits Hospital Coalition
consists of nonprofit hospitals/systems and the Hospital Council
of Northern and Central California, in partnership with the Santa
Clara County Public Health Department.
The Coalition’s goal for the 2019 Community Health Needs
Assessment is to collectively gather community feedback and
secondary data about health status. With this assessment,
hospital members will then develop implementation strategies to
help tackle these needs and continue to improve the health status
of the communities they serve.
The Community Needs Assessment Breakfast on Tuesday, September 27
was a success, with community, health, and elected officials in
attendance to celebrate the completion of the 2016 Community
Health Needs Assessment (CHNA), done through the San Francisco
Health Improvement Partnership (SFHIP).
