Community Health Needs Assessment

Calais Regional Hospital takes part in the Maine Shared Community Health Needs Assessment (Maine CHNA), which is a collaborative effort between all Maine hospitals and led by Central Maine Healthcare (CMHC), MaineGeneral Health (MGH), MaineHealth (MH), Northern Light Health (NLH), and the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention, an office of the Department of Health and Human Services (Maine CDC). This unique public-private partnership is intended to assess the health needs of all who call Maine home.

Health priorities for the state and county were developed based on the county community engagement and prioritization
process.   Forums were held within each county to review the County Health Profiles, discuss community needs, and
prioritize the needs in small break-out sessions, followed by a forum session vote.   Attendees at the forums held across the 16 counties in Maine identified a list of health issues in each of their communities, through a voting methodology.
