Addressing the community's health needs
Legacy’s mission is “…good health for our people, our patients, our communities, our world.” Aligned to this, Legacy hospitals complete Community Health Needs Assessments (CHNA) and Community Health Improvement Plans (CHIPs) every three years to determine the priority factors influencing the health of the community, to identify the needs and gaps impacting the health status of cohorts within the broader community and to identify how the hospital’s resources and expertise can be matched with external resources to optimally address those issues.
In 2013 the 15 hospitals, four public health departments and two CCOs in Clackamas, Multnomah, Washington and Clark counties collaborated to conduct a regional Healthy Columbia Willamette Collaborative (HCWC) CHNA. The HCWC regional CHNA was used as a base for the Legacy hospital CHNAs completed in FY 2015.
