Community Health Needs Assessment

Building Strong Communities


We are pleased to present the 2016 MultiCare Community Health Needs Assessments (CHNA) and Implementation Strategies for each of our five hospitals. These reports identify the most pressing health needs in our hospital service areas, and how we will work with our communities to address those needs.

MultiCare collaborated with the Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department and Public Health Seattle-King County to collect and review community health data. This process included assessing key health indicators from several data sources and information provided by community members and leaders.

Based on this data, available resources, existing programs, and other needs identified by MultiCare leaders, the following health needs were selected as the focus of the next three-year implementation period:

  • Access to Care
  • Obesity
  • Tobacco use
  • Behavioral Health
  • Cultural Competency
  • Childhood Immunizations

The following Community Health Needs Assessments and Implementation Strategies represent our commitment to providing the highest quality programs and services to promote health and healing.
