Community health needs assessments

The mission of Corewell Health is to improve health, inspire hope and save lives. To fulfill this mission Healthier Communities focuses on reaching the highest level of health equity possible with the people, neighborhoods and regions we serve.

Spectrum Health is committed to continually improving the health of communities it serves. One way in which this is achieved is by each regional community working to:

  • Conduct a community health needs assessment;
  • Develop an implementation strategy that communicates how each identified health need will be addressed; and
  • Complete an impact report that indicates the measurable impact of the implementation strategy.
  • Corewell Health Grand Rapids Hospitals:
