Needs Assessment

We have completed our 2021 community health needs assessment. This report includes the results of this assessment, a summary of trends from past assessments, accomplishments, and future programs/activities as part of the Implementation Plan.

The Healthy Blair County Coalition (HBCC) has completed the 2018 community health needs assessment. The information gathered from the needs assessment will be used by the HBCC Steering Committee and many organizations to develop or enhance services and programs throughout Blair County.

Ever since the needs assessments reports were published, our community has been taking action to address many of the issues discovered in the research. Please review the following report which provides an overview of our goals, action steps, and accomplishments.

Beginning in 2012, all hospitals were required by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act to conduct a community health needs assessment every three years and to develop an intervention plan to meet community health needs.

In 2007, the United Way of Blair County and the Blair County Human Services Office invited organizations to collaborate on a community-wide needs assessment.
