Community Health Needs

Identifying Health Needs, Finding Solutions - St. Joseph's Hospital

As a leading community-based health system in the greater Tampa Bay area, BayCare Health System is committed to meeting the wide-ranging health needs of our neighbors in every community we serve. As part of that commitment, BayCare conducted a comprehensive Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) to identify the most significant health needs across our region and develop strategies for addressing them. We used a collaborative process in the communities surrounding each of our hospitals, listening to input from the people we serve and working with community organizations that share our commitment to improve health and quality of life.

For each facility's community, the following are available:

What you will find when reviewing the 2016 Community Health Needs Assessment: 

  • The introduction section of the report describes how the assessment was conducted (i.e., purpose, methodology, types of data collected, geographic area assessed, etc.)
  • The Summary of Findings section provides an executive review of the Significant Health Needs of the Community and a Summary of Data with comparisons of benchmark data
  • The Data Charts and Key Informant section provides all the detailed data visuals and tables as well as input received from key community informants. All this information is organized by "health topic" (e.g., Mental Health, Cardiovascular, Substance Abuse, Cancer etc.) and combines all relevant data from the various sources of research into one section.
  • The Community Characteristics section provides a profile of the Population (i.e., population size, age, race, ethnicity) and Social Determinants of Health (i.e., poverty, education) for the geographic area studied.
