Community Health Needs Report and Implementation Plan


The recent movement to transform public health and health systems stresses that where we live, work, play, pray and learn determines our health and well being. It helps to shift our focus from treating disease and sickness towards prevention and collaboration in order to improve the quality of life for all citizens. Social, economic, political, environmental and individual factors all have a role to play in our health problems, and most importantly, in the solutions. Conducting a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHA) and Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) are the most important _rst steps
in transforming health and wellness. From September 2015 through February 2016, stakeholders across Gila County and the CVRMC service region engaged in a community-driven process to identify the most pressing health issues facing residents. Lead by the Gila County Division of Health and Emergency Management (GCDHEM) and CVRMC, community members and organizations came together to provide valuable insights on experiences of health and sickness, as well as realistic ways to affect change. These documents outline the process and the plan of action to improve health for all residents across Gila County and the CVRMC service region.
