Community Health Needs Assessments

Mayo Clinic is committed to working collaboratively with local partners to regularly assess and address the health needs within its local communities, as well as advance population health locally to globally through integrated clinical practice, education and research. We work with hundreds of community partners on collective efforts to improve the quality of life, health and well-being of all in our communities. We approach this work with the following principles:

  1. Health is valued by all members in our communities.
  2. Health is determined by many factors, including social and behavioral, environmental, and medical, and all are important.
  3. We are committed to working with others to produce measurable improvements in the health of all community residents.
  4. Strategies to improve community health are best determined and implemented through partnerships between health care providers, community members and community-based organizations.
