Community Health Improvement Plan
In March 2012, Columbus Community Hospital, along with the East Central District Health Department and other agency partners, presented to the community the results of our service area’s comprehensive Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA).
The CHNA served as the foundation for development of a Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) that would guide Platte County for the next three years. The Platte County CHIP will be updated and reviewed on a quarterly basis during the three-year duration of the plan.
Community members were invited to help set goals for the CHIP, prioritize areas of need, develop an action plan, develop implementation strategies on how we, as a community, would plan to meet the highest priority health needs, define resources and strategies that could be used to meet those needs, and identify the anticipated impact of the strategy.
The five identified community health needs or priority issues for Platte County and its collaborating partners are:
- Access to health care
- Family support
- Substance abuse
- Mental health
CCH is taking the lead and working with the East Central District Health Department and other health and business-related agencies to address the needs of our communities. CCH is committed to providing its expertise and leadership to ensure that the appropriate resources are available to find viable solutions to these health and wellness issues.
