To better understand and address the health needs of communities in the Greater Tampa Bay area, the Florida Department of Health in Hillsborough, Pasco, Pinellas and Polk counties and local area hospitals are partnering on a comprehensive survey.

The 2019 Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) surveys residents on nutrition, physical activity, access to care and mental health. Click here to take the survey.  The survey is available until April 21, 2019.

Survey partners include: AdventHealth, BayCare, Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital, Lakeland Regional Health, Moffitt Cancer Center, Tampa General Hospital, and other area health organizations in the four-county area. Although county health departments developed their own surveys in the past, this is an opportunity for counties in the region to work together on a more comprehensive regional survey.

Data collected from the CHNA survey will help local health departments and healthcare providers better understand the needs of the community. The survey will be used to develop a community health improvement plan, which will address the issues residents are most concerned about.
