Dameron participates in a collaborative that produces a community health needs assessment (CHNA) every three years. It 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 to improve the health of local residents.
The CHNA is available for download on the Healthier San Joaquin website at healthiersanjoaquin.org.
Dameron Hospital uses the results to develop the hospital's community health improvement implementation plan.
