Formal Community Health Assessment

In alignment with Federal regulations, Northwestern Medical Center conducted a comprehensive community health assessment in 2012.  Through the analysis of qualitative and quantitative data, this assessment identified 24 health related issues facing the Franklin and Grand Isle Counties community.  These issues were confirmed and prioritized by a 22 member multi-disciplinary community panel.  The document consists of a 19 page summary outlining the priorities as well as NMC’s plans to help address them within our community.  That summary is followed by the 120 page full report.
