A community health needs assessment provides the foundation for improving and promoting the health of the community. The assessment identifies and describes factors that affect the health of a population, and factors that determine the availability of resources within the community to adequately address health concerns.
Bismarck-Burleigh Public Health, in collaboration with Custer Health, CHI St. Alexius Health and Sanford Health developed a multi-faceted assessment process designed to identify the health concerns of residents in the Bismarck-Mandan-Burleigh-Morton area.
The community health improvement plan summarizes the assessment process and identifies community health priorities. Key concerns will be addressed through implementation strategies in the next three years.
2022-2024 Community Priorities Included:
Healthy Living (Chronic Health Issues/Access to Healthy Food)
