Strategic Initiatives

During the 2019 Community Health Needs Assessment process, the advisory committee reviewed data and information from all sources including primary and secondary data, focus groups, and personal interview information to determine the leading community health needs for the Springfield service area. The group identified priority needs that fell into four main categories.

Dental Care / Oral Health
Substance Use Disorder
Mental Health
Affordable Health Care  

Please visit our Community Health Needs Assessment page for details on the implementation strategy and progress reports.

In addition, Springfield Hospital is currently in its 2022 Community Health Needs Assessment process, in collaboration with North Star Health, the local FQHC network. This report will be posted to our website by September 1st, 2022.
