Redlands community hospital, in collaboration with the Hospital Association of Southern California and seven hospital systems, performed a coordinated regional, Riverside and San Bernardino County, Community Health Needs Assessment in 2019. The regional needs assessment concept had been discussed and planned over the past few years. Having a regional assessment and continued collaboration amongst the health systems allowed for a coordinated effort to address the regions health and social determinants of health issues.

– Unmet health needs and problems
– Social determinants of health issues
– Vulnerable and at-risk populations
– Resources and services available
– Barriers to service and unmet needs
– Possible solutions to the identified needs and challenges
