The HSC Health Care System, in partnership with the DC Health Matters Collaborative is proud to release our 2019 Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA)!
The DC Health Matters Collaborative is a coalition of hospitals and federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) that combine efforts and resources to assess and address community needs. The work is done in partnership, is data-driven, and engages the community. The ultimate pursuit is an equal and sustainable state of health for District of Columbia residents. HSC is proud to participate in this work and we encourage you to click below and view the posted reports.
DC Health Matters provides a one-stop resource for online access to community health indicators and related resources that impact the health of DC communities. You will find up-to-date demographic, health, and social determinants data; hundreds of maps, tables, and figures; and promising practices on this website.
Thank you to the hundreds of DC community stakeholders for your thoughtful input and engagement in the 2019 CHNA. The DC Health Matters Collaborative will continue to work with community partners to develop a Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) that responds to the CHNA findings.
The CHIP will be released in November 2019. Please join us on this journey by visiting DC Health Matters and clicking on the “Stay Connected” button.
