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. Advance Community Health’s CEO serves on the Assessment Team and many staff members help support the project. The 2019 assessment  identified priority areas for Wake County being:

  1. Transportation Options and Transit
  2. Employment
  3. Access to Care
  4. Mental Health & Substance Use Disorders
  5. Housing and Homelessness

"Despite the region’s success, there are groups that lack basic health care. ACH continues to meet the needs of these citizens and seeks to expand its services by asking its partners to invest in it."
