Community Needs Assessment

As the state’s largest region, by population, Region 3 encompasses a large and diverse population. Consequently, there were a multitude of factors that were evaluated to determine the best approaches to improving healthcare within the region. Our nine counties serve more than 4.8 million individuals in rural and metropolitan areas, impoverished and affluent areas, who vary in age, education levels, cultures, beliefs, languages and access to resources that all influence the type of care that they seek. By learning more about those factors through the community needs assessment, performing providers were able to relate at least one specific identified community need to each project with the goal of strengthening the collective impact across the region and filling in identified gaps.
