The Community Health Assessment (CHA) is the ongoing process of regular and systematic collection, assembly, analysis, and distribution of information on the health needs of our communities. GO Health works with Wyoming County Health Department, hospital systems, community partner organizations and community members reviewing statistics on health status, community health needs, gaps, problems and assets. This process includes community conversations with individuals, groups, and organizations as well as a community survey to determine the communitys’ perception of health.
