Community Health Assessment
MedStar Montgomery Medical Center is proud to release its 2012 Community Health Assessment (CHA) and its implementation strategy. The CHA uses a community-driven approach that supports the hospital in planning and carrying out community-based programming to more effectively handle the health needs of underserved and vulnerable populations. The three-year implementation strategy identifies the hospital's community benefit service area, the most important health priorities, and activities with measurable outcomes.
MedStar Montgomery Medical Center and the Healthy Communities Institute are also proud to release community health data for Montgomery County. Some data indicators are access to care, disease prevalence, public safety and environmental conditions, social indicators, and more. There is also a dashboard that allows for comparisons to other counties as well as comparisons to Healthy People 2020. The site also includes nationally recognized, evidence-based and promising practices that may be adapted for other communities.
