In 2013, Chester County Hospital leaders were active participants in Chester County';s Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA). The RoadMAPP to Health project was conducted for the entire county, and as a result there is now an ongoing effort to focus on healthy lifestyles and opportunities to provide medical services where they are needed.
The main goal of the 18-month assessment for the 36 participating health service providers was to create a community where partners assure conditions in which individuals can be healthy and where residents are empowered to manage their own health.
RoadMAPP captured health information and feedback from Pottstown to Landenberg, from Devon to Atglen, from Nottingham to Phoenixville, and from Elverson to Chadds Ford.
As a result of the health assessment survey, five work groups consisting of representatives from community-based
organizations and agencies are implementing the recommendations of the assessment and developing initiatives to
advance the health of the community. They are finding solutions for the following questions:
Based on the CHNA findings, the hospital developed its own Implementation Plan identifying the specific steps it will take and the level of resources it will commit to maintain and improve the health of Chester County. Specifically, there were seven key findings in the health survey that the hospital will play an active role, either as a thought leader or collaborating health resource.
