Addressing the community's health needs

A community's health is the product of many different factors — education, economics and demographics are among those key factors.

For a better picture of what drives the community's health, Legacy Health reviewed data and interviewed more than 100 leaders in the four-county Portland/Vancouver metro area. We then applied our expertise to produce the Community Needs Assessment.

The Community Needs Assessment offers information about the issues facing our community's health and provides a roadmap for how Legacy will address needs beyond our role of providing direct care.

Legacy is also involved in Healthy Columbia Willamette, a collaborative of 15 hospitals and four health departments in the Clackamas, Multnomah and Washington counties of Oregon in and in Clark County, Washington, aimed at better health for the community.
