Community Health Needs Assessment

RWJ Rahway is pleased to present our Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) and our Community Health Improvement plan. We engaged Baker Tilly to develop the report and conduct the research to assess needs and plan accordingly. The report includes updated Rahway and Union County service area health statistics including health status and socio-economic factors. We gathered 25 community stakeholders to help us identify health priories, find opportunities for partnership and address needs.

Our Community Improvement Plan focuses on increasing chronic disease screening rates and increasing community education and outreach promoting chronic disease prevention, particularly in the area of diabetes. We also seek to increase self-management opportunities for those living with chronic disease, particularly diabetes.

We seek to increase access to cancer screenings and services and increase awareness of the benefits of early detection for certain types of cancer, particularly lung cancer. In the area of behavioral health, our objectives include increasing education and awareness of behavioral health symptoms and resources in the community. We seek to strengthen partnerships with community stakeholders for treatment and referral.
