Community Health Assessment

Lorain County completed its second comprehensive Community Health Assessment (CHA) in 2015. The Alcohol and Drug Addiction Services Board of Lorain County and Communities That Care of Lorain County collected youth data through the PRIDE Survey, and an adult survey was conducted by the Hospital Council of Northwest Ohio. The two local data sets were reported alongside health information from national and state data resources.

The CHA provides an examination of diverse aspects of Lorain County by analyzing data and reporting the health status by urban, suburban, and rural community types. The results of Lorain County’s CHA provide valuable information that is used to drive planning efforts and initiatives for Lorain County Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) priorities.

For additional information on the Lorain County Community Health Assessment project or to provide feedback on the assessment, contact Stephanie Lesco, Accreditation Coordinator at slesco@loraincountyhealth.com
