Every three years, the Hospital Association of San Diego and Imperial Counties (HASD&IC) facilitates a collaborative community health needs assessment (CHNA) to meet IRS regulatory requirements and to identify and prioritize the health needs of San Diego County residents, particularly those who experience health inequities.
The 2019 CHNA is built on the results and feedback from the 2016 CHNA and includes extensive community engagement: focus groups for residents, community-based organizations, social service providers, and health care leaders; key informant interviews with health care experts; and an online survey for residents and stakeholders. A total of 579 individuals participated in the 2019 CHNA process, including 138 community residents and 441 leaders and experts representing the San Diego County community.
The 2019 CHNA Executive Summary and Full Report are posted below, along with briefs on selected health conditions and social determinants of health.
