The purpose of this Community Health Needs Assessment is to help LLUH’s licensed hospitals meet and exceed state and federal regulations on surveying the extended community’s health needs. It aims to identify key strategic areas of potential community investment that can optimize the overall health and well-being in our region. We seek to better understand the needs of the most vulnerable community members in our hospitals’ primary and secondary service regions which include both San Bernardino and Riverside counties. Despite the regulatory requirements, this process allows our Health System to go beyond our hospital walls and continue to fulfill our institutional mission: to further the teaching and healing ministry of Jesus Christ to make man whole. The findings of this assessment are meant to be used as our “North Star” in addressing unmet health needs in the community and promoting health equity within the region.
