Health Needs Assessment

Wake County

Every three years, Wake County conducts a comprehensive community examination through a process known as the Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA). The process is always a collaborative effort between all the local hospitals, Wake County Human Services, Advance Community Health and other safety-net organizations. CEO Penny Washington serves on the Assessment Team and many staff members help support the project. The 2016 assessment was just released with the identified priority areas for Wake County being:

  1. Health Insurance Coverage
  2. Transportation
  3. Access to Health Services
  4. Mental Health & Substance Abuse
