Community Health Needs Assessment

Understanding the current health status of the community is important in order to identify priorities for future planning and funding, the existing strengths and assets on which to build upon, and areas for further collaboration across organizations, institutions, and community groups. 

The Health Improvement Alliance – a coalition of hospitals, departments of public health, federally qualified health centers, and numerous community and non-profit organizations serving the Greater Bridgeport, CT area – engaged in a process to assess the health needs of the Greater Bridgeport community, as part of a larger goal of measurably improving the health and wellbeing of its residents.

Bridgeport Hospital, as part of the Health Improvement Alliance, recently completed its 2022 community health needs assessment process. This included the development of a comprehensive Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) by the hospital to address the major unmet needs in the region.
