CHNA Reports

About the Community Health Needs Assessment 

The Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) is used to identify prevalent health needs among residents across all socioeconomic groups, races and ethnicities. The CHNA also highlights health disparities which disproportionately impact medically underserved, low-income and uninsured populations. The information and insight gained through the CHNA will be used to guide new strategies and enhance existing efforts to improve the health of our communities. Northwestern Medicine and its community health partners share a vision of a healthy community, and we are committed to working together to address significant health needs and make the greatest possible impact on community health status.
