Community Health Needs Assessments
Since 1995, Sharp has participated in a countywide collaborative to conduct a triennial Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) that identifies priority health and social needs for San Diego County. In addition, Sharp develops CHNAs for each of its individually licensed hospitals.*
Sharp hospitals use the findings from their CHNAs to help guide the Sharp HealthCare Community Benefit Plan and Report (PDF), as well as individual Sharp hospital implementation strategies to improve overall community health and wellness.
CHNA and implementation strategy PDF documents are available for download for the following entities:
Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center
Sharp Coronado Hospital and Healthcare Center
Sharp Grossmont Hospital
Sharp McDonald Center
