Community Health Needs Assessment
Teton County Health Statistics
The Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) is completed every three years
in partnership with the Teton County Health Department. This comprehensive
assessment surveys the general health of the community to determine the
health issues that impact local residents most significantly and how we
can help prevent them. The results of this assessment help determine future
services at St. John’s Medical Center.
The CHNA has served as the catalyst for the formation of the community
Healthy Teton County (HTC). The results of the CHNA provide a comprehensive overview of the
primary health needs in Teton County, WY. HTC utilizes the Mobilizing
for Action through Planning and Partnerships (MAPP) framework developed
by the National Association of County and City Health Officials. Each
iteration of MAPP includes at least three distinct, comprehensive assessments,
multiple community meetings, a quality of life survey of residents, an
examination of existing health data, and consultations with health professionals
and over 30 human service organizations from across Teton County. Once
the most pressing health issues are identified, we then create an implementation
plan to address those issues.
Our completed CHNAs and Implementation Plans are listed below. These illuminate
the common issues faced by Teton County residents, and what you can do
to help resolve them in both your own family and the community as a whole.
