Nash County Health Department and Nash UNC Health Care are participating in a new collaborative Eastern Regional Partnership in order to facilitate a comprehensive community health needs assessment for Nash or Edgecombe Counties.
This assessment is being undertaken by a partnership of 33 counties, hospitals, health systems, and health departments in Eastern North Carolina. It allows these partners to better understand the health status and needs of the community they serve and use the knowledge gained to implement programs that will benefit the community.
The survey is open until June 30.

A comprehensive assessment of the health needs of residents of the Nash Health Care community
The 2016 Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) examines the overall health needs of the residents of the Nash Health Care community. While Nash Health Care (NHC) has historically assessed the health needs of the community and responded accordingly, this CHNA is another step in NHC’s efforts to identify and respond to the needs of its community.
As outlined throughout this document, a significant amount of data and information have been reviewed and incorporated in this planning process, and NHC has been careful to ensure that a variety of sources were leveraged to develop a truly comprehensive report. It is also important to note that, although unique to NHC’s identified community, the sources and methodologies used to develop this report comply with CHNA guidelines provided in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA).
