Community Health Needs Assessment
Columbus Regional Healthcare System, located in Columbus County, North Carolina, is the leading healthcare provider serving the health care needs of those in the Columbus County area. With a mission to be the primary healthcare home of the citizens of Columbus County and surrounding communities, Columbus Regional Healthcare System is dedicated to improving the health of the community and to being a leader in raising standards for excellence in care delivery.
In the spring of 2012, Columbus Regional Healthcare System and the Columbus County Health Department began the implementation of a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) for Columbus County. The effort focused on assessing community health needs, local health resources, barriers to care, gaps in services, and trends regarding health and healthy lifestyles. The resulting CHNA will be utilized to document community need and link those needs to community benefit efforts of the health system. The needs assessment will be utilized to assist the hospital in planning and prioritizing its community benefit investments.
