Community Health Needs Assessment
Community Health Needs Assessment Implementation Plan
Our community health needs assessment uses quantitative and qualitative methods to systematically collect and analyze data from Monroe County and the surrounding area to understand the health within the community we serve. The assessment includes information on health risk factors, quality of life, mortality, morbidity, perceived needs, community assets, forces of change, social determinants of health and health inequity as well as information on how well Mercy Memorial provides essential services.
