Community Health Assessments

Final Version of the 2019 CHA Report

In the spring of 2016, it was agreed by all health and human service agencies in attendance at a county health department meeting, that we complete a Community Health Needs Assessment.

A Community Health Needs Assessment is often used by local health and human service agencies to evaluate the health status of residents and identify health issues and concerns within a community.

The current Ashtabula County Community Health Needs Assessment builds upon previous County Health Needs Assessments.  Conducting Community Health Needs Assessments every three to five years allows health and human service agencies to track and evaluate health issues and concerns over time.

The Community Health Needs Assessment report provides updated and statistical health status information on county residents.  The report not only provides information on county death and disease rates, but also contains information on how county residents perceive the health status of the county, as well as how residents perceive the quality, accessibility and availability of health care services in Ashtabula County.

It is also worth mentioning that the 2018 and 2016 Ashtabula County Health Needs Assessment Reports allow for health and human service providers in Ashtabula County to directly compare health status indicators such as death and disease data with those found in the 2011 Community Health Needs Assessment Report.
