This year Carilion Clinic and the New River Valley Partnership for Access to HealthCare (PATH) hav partnered to conduct the 2016 NRV Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA), which included Floyd, Montgomery and Pulaski counties. PATH is a collaborative, community-focused alliance of 50+ health, community and human service organizations and businesses with a mission to maximize access to health care for all residents in the NRV. Conducted every three years, the CHNA helps uncover community health concerns, indicate where improvement is needed, and track progress in key areas. This year special emphasis was placed on uncovering the needs of the low-income, uninsured and/or underinsured, and those living with chronic illness. Results from the Community Health Survey, focus groups with key stakeholders, providers, and target populations as well as secondary data collection will be posted on www.carilionclinic.org/about/chna on October 1, 2016.
