2016 Community Health Needs Assessment
Phoenix Children’s serves the Southwest region as an essential provider of pediatric specialty care, but its primary service area is Maricopa County which accounts for 80% of our inpatient discharges. In order to best serve this community, Phoenix Children’s has partnered with the Maricopa County Coordinated Health Needs Assessment (CCHNA), the Health Improvement Partnership of Maricopa County (HIPMC) and the Maricopa County Department of Public Health (MCDPH) to conduct an in-depth health needs assessment of the county.
This report was completed and presented in October, 2016. It serves as one of several approaches the hospital uses to identify and prioritize significant health needs of this community and inform the implementation strategies selected to address them.
