The community health needs assessment (CHNA) is intended to inform the investment of community benefit funds in order to improve the health of those living in the community that the hospital belongs to.
El Camino Hospital’s CHNA was conducted over the course of six months, between Fall 2012 and Spring 2013. The next CHNA will be issued in 2016. In order to understand the biggest health needs in the hospital's community, this CHNA combines public health data with community input gathered from public health experts, front line service providers, patients, and residents. The health needs were summarized and filtered to reveal a set of top health needs across the county. These needs were reviewed by the Community Benefit Advisory Council (CBAC), who then selected nine to be addressed by community benefit investments.
