Serving Our South Florida Community – A UHealth Mission and Privilege
Community Health Needs Assessment - This assessment guides our health system to better serve and improve the health of our South Florida community, a key commitment and priority of UHealth and the entire University.
UHealth includes Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, Bascom Palmer Eye Institute/Anne Bates Leach Eye Center, and UHealth Tower, and 30 outpatient sites providing comprehensive care in more than 100 subspecialties across South Florida. Our strength in research as the region’s only academic health care system is clearly recognized. UHealth’s focus on expanding the delivery of specialized care for the population we serve, improve access across the region and addressing all seven of the key priority needs of our diverse community is unwavering.
Gathering input from a diverse group of community partners, patients, health system leadership and other stakeholders, UHealth assessed qualitative and quantitative data about community health needs and, more importantly, opportunities for improving health equity.
Our methodology and findings are summarized in the following 2019-2021 Community Health Needs Assessment. UHealth is committed and privileged to play such a critical role in addressing these needs for everyone in our community.
