A Community Needs Assessment survey is conducted by San Juan Regional Medical Center and San Juan Regional Rehabilitation Hospital to determine the health needs for San Juan County as perceived by the citizens of the county. The 2020 Community Health Needs Assessment concluded the following areas of need:
• Mental Health
• Substance Abuse
• Access to Care
• Develop Actionable Steps to Address Local Health Disparities
Our experience with the local impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, highlighted a disproportionate impact on the local Native American populations. Other at-risk populations (those with underlying health conditions) were also severely impacted. As a healthcare leader in San Juan County, SJRMC should be a catalyst in addressing health disparities and be part of solutions to make positive impacts on social determinants of health.
Our hospitals' Boards of Directors and management team conduct this survey to determining how best to direct resources to improve the health of all citizens in the county. Gaps in healthcare are identified and evaluated, and the hospital's focus will be on closing those gaps.
