Data & Reports

What We Do

Our data team uses local data to highlight areas of public health importance in Mesa County. We work hard to make that data meaningful and available to residents. We also release a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) every three years in partnership with non-profit hospitals in the County.

The community data provided in the CHNA is designed to help us see where our community has strong foundations, and where there are opportunities to strengthen the foundations. Through community initiatives, we work collaboratively to strengthen foundations and provide Mesa County residents with the opportunity to make choices that allow them to live a long and healthy life.

Framework for our Community Health Needs Assessment

The Community Health Needs Assessment identifies areas of action–opportunities to enhance or build these resources through community-driven solutions that make our residents, businesses, schools, and neighborhoods more resilient. 

This approach is rooted in the belief that community-driven solutions should be a collaboration between community partners and across sectors to creatively address our most challenging areas of action.
