Froedtert Hospital's community benefit efforts are based on identified needs within a community needs assessment. The needs assessment, typically conducted every three years, is a collaborative process often including health care providers, public health departments and other community organizations dedicated to creating a healthier community.
The needs assessments generally include:
- Quantitative data
- Qualitative data
- Direct community input
Identified needs vary and can include issues that require community attention to such topics as:
- Chronic Disease Prevention & Management
- Mental Health
- Access to Primary and Specialty Care
- Prevention and Wellness
- Injury & Violence
- Housing Issues
Results from community needs assessments assist us in targeting areas of focus and are utilized to draft community benefit plans.
