As hospitals, we are guided by a fundamental goal to improve the health of the communities we serve. The Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA), which UP Health System - Marquette and Portage conduct every three years, establishes in clear terms the unique needs of our community, ensures we have the information we need to work towards those goals, and provides an opportunity to improve coordination between hospital community benefits and other community health initiatives.
2022 CHNA | UP Health System
Over the past two months, UP Health System analyzed public health data, interviewed many subject matter experts, and conducted online surveys to gain a better understanding of the healthcare needs in our region. In the next few months, we will share our overall findings and implementation plans to better serve our communities and neighbors. We look forward to furthering our mission of Making Communities Healthier® now and in the future.
