Dameron participates in a collaborative that produces
a community health needs assessment (CHNA) every three years. The CHNA provides a community profile of San Joaquin County. The CHNA helps identify needs throughout the community and is used to inform and engage local stakeholders and community members to promote collaborative efforts based on data, community input, and group consensus in order to improve the health of local residents.
The most recent CHNA was released in 2013. View here.
The CHNA is also available on the Healthier San Joaquin website: www.healthiersanjoaquin.org
Dameron Hospital uses the results of the Community Health Needs Assessment to develop the hospital's community health improvement implementation plan. View here.
HEAL (Health Educate and Leadership) offers a rare chance for the four major healthcare providers in our area to work collaboratively for such a worthy cause. The professionals who take time out of their busy schedules to visit the classroom are given the gift of reconnecting to what inspired them to choose a career in healthcare.
Carolyn Sanders, RN has been organizing the monthly visits to Mrs. Crichlow’s 7th Grade class. The students learned first-hand where germs are…everywhere by swabbing areas of their classroom and watching the bacteria grow. Dr. Otashe Golden of Dameron Hospital purchased the American Heart CPR Anywhere Mannequin & DVD training units for every student to learn CPR and then take their unit home to share their newfound skill with their family. This is the added bonus of this outreach, the student taking home vital health information.
The SJ Office of Education, Hamilton teachers and Dr. Singh are to be commended for their vision.
