Obesity, substance use, mental and behavioral health, access to care, and transportation are among the top health needs in Cumberland, Gloucester, and Salem counties identified in the most recent Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA), commissioned by Inspira Health Network and researched and facilitated by WRI.
Through a mix of sophisticated data collection methods and innovative approaches to community engagement, WRI delivered a comprehensive CHNA that includes not only quantitative and qualitative analysis, but also visualization and mapping. WRI worked closely with the community to gain insights into specific challenges and associated concerns, and worked to identify potential solutions. In each priority area, the report outlines case studies, and shares community feedback and recommendations.
The report is part of a federal requirement for nonprofit hospitals to conduct a CHNA once every three years.
