COMMUNITY HEALTH NEEDS ASSESSMENT
2016 Community Health Needs Assessment Reports Released
MaineHealth is committed to the vision of “working together so our communities are the healthiest in America.”
Our newly released reports on community health are helping us get there. These reports are the result of a unique partnership called the Shared Health Needs Assessment and Planning Process, or SHNAPP, (described below).
Findings from the reports are helping MaineHealth and our hospital members better understand health needs and opportunities, so that we can provide the very best care in the communities we serve.
