Jefferson Regional Medical Center is proud to present our 2012-2013 Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) Report. This report includes a comprehensive review and analysis of data regarding the health issues and needs of the individuals residing in the service region of Jefferson Regional.
This study was conducted to identify the health needs and issues of the region and to provide useful information to public health and health care providers, policy makers, collaborative groups, social service agencies, community groups and organizations, churches, businesses, and consumers who are interested in improving the health status of the community and region. The results enable the medical center, local health department and other providers to more strategically establish priorities, develop interventions and commit resources.
Improving the health of the community is the foundation of the mission of Jefferson Regional Medical Center and an important focus for everyone in the service region, individually and collectively. In addition to the education, patient care and program interventions provided through the medical center, we hope the information in this study will encourage additional activities and collaborative efforts to improve the health status of the community.
At the heart of Jefferson Regional Medical Center is a commitment to provide you with programs that encourage healthy living and the high-quality healthcare you need during times of illness.
