Understanding the current health status of the community is important in order to identify priorities for future planning and funding, the existing strengths and assets on which to build upon, and areas for further collaboration across organizations, institutions, and community groups.
Millinocket Regional Hospital, as part of the Maine Shared Health Needs Assessment Planning Process Collaborative, recently completed its 2016 community health needs assessment process. This included the development of a comprehensive Strategic Plan to address the major unmet needs in the Katahdin Region.
As part of a larger goal of measurably improving the health and wellbeing of its residents, Maine’s four largest health-care systems: Central Maine HealthCare, Eastern Maine Healthcare Systems (EMHS), MaineGeneral Health, and MaineHealth – as well as the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention an office of the Maine Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) led a process to assess the health needs of residents across the entire state of Maine.
