Community Health Needs

Northeast Georgia Medical Center (NGMC), with input from the community, completed a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) in 2013.  NGMC has conducted assessments in the past via Healthy Hall.  Now nonprofit hospitals are required by law to complete an assessment, make the results available to the community and develop an implementation plan that the hospital will champion.

NGMC’s assessment includes a secondary data scan and a community health profile for Hall County.  The assessment focuses mainly on the needs of the community’s most vulnerable populations, particularly those with low-incomes who are uninsured. Six focus groups were held and nearly 25 one-on-one interviews were conducted with stakeholders.  The study culminated in the identification of 10 priority health needs.

See a spreadsheet of intiatives and activities Northeast Georgia Medical Center is involved with which address those needs. Many activities overlap different priorities, and NGMC’s involvement ranges from providing the activity itself to contributing in some way. The spreadsheet is not an exhaustive list, but highlights many of the organization’s efforts to address identified community health needs.

You'll see the full CHNA by clicking the link below.  If you have any questions, call NGMC's Community Health Improvement department at 770-219-8097.
