Community Health Assessment

Lorain County completed its second comprehensive Community Health Assessment (CHA) in 2015. CHA data was collected from surveys of Lorain County youth, conducted by the Alcohol and Drug Addiction Services Board of Lorain County and Communities That Care of Lorain County. Data was also collected from surveys of Lorain County adults, conducted by the Hospital Council of Northwest Ohio. Our local data sets are reported alongside health information from national, state, and local data sources. The unique design of this CHA permits an examination of the diverse aspects of Lorain County by analyzing the data and reporting the health status by urban, suburban, and rural community types. The results of Lorain County’s CHA provide valuable information that will be used to drive planning efforts and initiatives for Lorain County Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) priorities.

This report would not exist without the financial support and collaborative assistance of our local community organizations. Special thanks are given to the Hospital Council of Northwest Ohio for guiding the community health assessment process.
