Community Health Needs Assessment

A Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) provides information that helps to identify factors affecting our county, determine resources needed to address these factors, and develop a plan of action to address community needs.

Generally performed every three years, through a collaborative process between Rockingham County Health and Human Services, local hospitals, and other non-profit, government, education, faith-based, and business organizations, the CHNA is a systematic, data-driven approach to determining the health status, behaviors and needs of residents in Rockingham County. The CHNA serves as a tool that will assist in achieving three basic goals:

  • To improve resident’s health status, increase their life spans, and elevate their overall quality of life
  • To reduce the health disparities among residents
  • To increase accessibility to preventative services for all community residents Information collected from the CHNA will guide our efforts to structure programs and objectives with the goal of improving the community’s overall health and wellness.
