Community Health Needs Assessment
Your health. Your community. Your voice.
Driven by our mission to extend God's healing love to improve the health of those we serve, Susquehanna Health is committed to caring for our patients, nurturing the sick and strengthening the well. We honor our tax-exempt status and our responsibility to the counties we serve through various programs, activities and partnerships that are aimed at improving the health of our communities.
The Community Health Needs Assessment is a primary tool used to determine our community benefit plan, which outlines how we will give back to the community in the form of healthcare and other community services to address unmet community health needs. The assessment examines health status, use of health services, access and barriers to care and other factors affecting the health of residents in Lycoming and Tioga counties. The findings point out several major health issues facing our community, including chronic disease care (e.g. diabetes, heart disease and respiratory disease), cancer rates, levels of obesity, smoking and illicit drug use, and access to dental and mental health services.
Together we can shape the future of healthcare in our communities! Below are copies of the Community Health Needs Assessment from 2013 and 2016.
