Community Health Needs Assessment
As a leading non-profit health system in the greater New Orleans area, LCMC Health is committed to meeting the wide-ranging health needs of our neighbors in every community we serve. Responding to that commitment, LCMC Health conducted a comprehensive Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) to identify the most significant health needs across our region and develop strategies for addressing them.
We used a collaborative process in the communities surrounding each of our hospitals, listening to input from the people we serve and working with community organizations that share our commitment to improve health and quality of life. We found that our region’s health concerns are pressing and diverse: from increasing access to affordable care to addressing chronic conditions that are limiting quality of life for too many in our communities. LCMC Health, with five hospitals throughout the greater New Orleans area already has many programs to address our region’s health needs. We are committed to doing even more – by collaborating with community partners on services and solutions, using the CHNA as our roadmap.
We invite you to explore this site to learn more about the CHNA. You can click on your local LCMC Health hospital in the list below to find detailed information about health needs in your area and how LCMC Health and community partners are responding: Touro’s CHNA, Children’s CHNA and UMC’s CHNA.
