Community Health Needs Assessment

November 5, 2018

The 2018 Mahoning Valley Community Health Needs Assessment has been sent to a sampling of residents in Trumbull and Mahoning Counties. It’s critical for the community as a whole that individuals who receive the survey take the time to complete it with open and honest feedback, and submit it in a timely manner. All answers remain confidential. In fact, survey responses are reported in a combined manner, not at all tied to individual respondents. 


Mercy Health – Youngstown is partnering with several other local health care providers and various city and county agencies in the assessment process. Included among them are Mahoning County District Board of Health, Trumbull County Combined Health District, Healthy Community Partnership Mahoning Valley, Youngstown City Health District, Trumbull and Mahoning County Mental Health and Recovery Boards, Mercy Health Foundation Mahoning Valley, and Warren City Health District. Together, these providers will use the survey results to shape a comprehensive plan to address our area's greatest health needs.


More than 3,500 Mahoning and Trumbull County residents age 19 and over will be randomly selected to receive the surveys. Questions range from their general health, risk and protective health factors, as well as access to health care. Respondents are asked to return the completed surveys in the postage-paid envelopes that come with them within seven days.


The final community health assessment report will be published in spring 2019.
