Community Health Needs Assessment

Johnston Health has performed a Community Health Needs Assessment to determine the health needs of the local community and develop an implementation plan to outline and organize how to meet those needs.

Data was gathered from multiple well-respected secondary sources to build an accurate picture of the current community and its health needs. A survey of a select group of Local Experts was performed to review the prior CHNA and provide feedback, and to ascertain whether the previously identified needs are still a priority. A second survey was distributed to the same group that reviewed the data gathered from the secondary sources and determined the Significant Health Needs for the community.

The Significant Health Needs for Johnston County are:

  1. Affordability/Accessibility
  2. Cancer
  3. Mental Health/Suicide
  4. Coronary Heart Disease
  5. Diabetes
  6. Physicians

The Hospital has developed implementation strategies for all six of the needs including activities to continue/pursue, community partners to work alongside, and leading and lagging indicators to track.
