Responding to our Community’s Needs
Valley conducts Community Health Needs Assessments to measure the health status, behaviors and needs of residents in the communities we serve. The information gathered is used to help Valley direct resources to areas that need improvement, and guide efforts to enrich community health and wellness.
Valley’s latest Community Benefit Report shares updates and statistics about our community outreach, education, partnership and support initiatives.
Valley’s Community Health Implementation Plan outlines our goals for responding to the community’s health needs, as reported in the Community Health Needs Assessment.
