Partners for Healthy Communities

Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Hamilton, in conjunction with The Greater Mercer Public Health Partnership, is pleased to present our 2019-2021 Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) for the greater Mercer County region.

The Community Health Needs Assessment is a process that uses quantitative and qualitative methods to systematically collect and analyze data to better understand health within a specific community. The data collected in the CHNA has been reviewed, analyzed, and discussed by stakeholders across the region which includes a coalition of representatives from healthcare, government, business, education, non-profit organizations, and faith-based communities in the Mercer County region supported by Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Hamilton. Communities are typically defined by a geographic area; however, they can also be based on shared interests or characteristics such as religion, race, age, or occupation. People within a community come from different backgrounds and have unique cultures, customs, and values. Utilizing this wide range of ideas and wisdom was a key component of RWJUH Hamilton’s needs assessment.

The mission of the coalition is to work collaboratively to improve the health and well-being of all who live and work in Mercer County. With this data, communities can map out a course for health improvement and create strategies to make positive and sustainable changes in their communities and we eagerly share this information with you our community.
