Impact Community Health at Aug. 8 Focus Group Meeting

Lake Chelan Community Hospital & Clinics (LCCHC) invites you to a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) focus group meeting on Thursday, Aug. 8 from 5:30 – 6:30 PM at the Chelan Senior Center.

Every three years, the hospital and regional partners from Chelan, Douglas, Grant and Okanogan counties collaborate and perform a CHNA to better understand north central Washington’s community health needs. The organizations use gathered information to provide direction and impact population health.

The region developed its last CHNA in 2016. The four highest priority needs identified at that time were mental health care access, access to health care, education and obesity.

The 2019 CHNA steering committee is now collecting community input about what impacts health in Chelan County and, specifically, in the Lake Chelan Valley. The upcoming focus group will help the committee determine the community’s biggest health needs and provide direction for improving health and well-being in the LCCHC hospital district.

Focus group participants will identify strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats related to health in our community. Please join the group to improve the health and wellness of the Lake Chelan Valley. The Chelan Senior Center is located at 534 E. Trow.
