2020-2021

Department of Community Health & Preventive Medicine (CHPM) at St. Luke’s University Health Network (SLUHN) completed the 2019 Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) in June 2019. We are currently in the 2019-2022 cycle and will complete the next CHNA in 2022.

In this CHNA cycle, the focus will be on three main priorities: (1) Improving access to care & reducing health disparities, (2) Preventing chronic disease & improving healthy lifestyles and (3) Improving mental & behavioral health. Topics that are lumped together under one priority are done so because they are interrelated and contingent upon the other: for example, a healthy lifestyle is a prerequisite for preventing chronic disease.

2017-2018

The mission of St. Luke's University Health Network (SLUHN) is an unwavering commitment to excellence as we care for the sick and injured; educate physicians, nurses and other health care providers; and improve access to care in the communities we serve, regardless of a patient's ability to pay for health care. Moreover, the Community Health and Preventive Medicine (CHPM) Department of SLUHN continues to strive to achieve its mission of partnering with the community to increase health awareness, improve the health status of the community and encourage appropriate access to health services. Our 2016 CHNA revealed five main health priority areas:

  1. Improving Access to Care and Reducing Health Disparities
  2. Improving Health Lifestyles and Preventing Chronic Disease
  3. Improving Mental/Behavioral Health
  4. Improving Child Adolescent Health
  5. Improving Elder Health
Goals

As we address each health priority from our 2016 CHNA, we use a three-prong approach ensuring that all priorities are advanced using the three buckets related to Prevention and Wellness, Care Transformation, and Research and Partnerships. This ensures a more comprehensive approach where traditional community health programming/initiatives are intertwined with clinical service lines, while research and partnerships are further developed and fostered.
