Community Health

Hospitals and health systems deliver care for people within their communities. However, every community is different. Differences in the characteristics and pre-existing conditions of a patient population impact how a hospital can best serve their locality.

Data and resources on this page provide insight into population health trends, including prevalence of chronic conditions, whether individuals have a regular caregiver, and the rate of uninsured. Additional data points provide insight on readmissions and commonness of preventative health care.
