Monterey County Proceeds with CHNA

The Monterey County Community Health Needs Collaborative was created a few years ago by four hospitals (referenced above), Hospital Council, the Monterey County Health Department, and the United Way of Monterey County to conduct a countywide community health needs assessment (CHNA).  

The collaborative has come together again with a new partner, California State University, Monterey Bay, to conduct the next CHNA. Hospital Council is the fiscal agent and works directly with the CHNA consultant and the collaborative. Currently, all the memoranda of understanding have been sent out and approved by the collaborative partners.

Takeaway/Next Steps

We will have our kickoff meeting in late summer to begin the CHNA process.
