Community Health Improvement

Serving The South Florida Community – Our Mission and Privilege

UHealth includes Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, UHealth Tower, and 31 outpatient sites providing comprehensive care in more than 100 subspecialties across South Florida. Our strength in research as the region’s only academic health system is frequently recognized, but it is also in our mission to promote the health and well-being of our community.

Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) - A CHNA is the ongoing process for a hospital to evaluate the health needs of a community. This process facilitates a prioritization of needs in order to build strategies that address challenges.

At the start of 2020 UHealth embarked on an ambitious CHNA initiative with Jackson Health System and Nicklaus Children’s Hospital. This is the first collaborative CHNA in Miami-Dade County.

Below is our most recent collaborative CHNA and implementation strategy for 2020/2021.

UHealth is committed to the health and well-being of our community and playing a critical role in addressing these needs for everyone.
