Community Resources

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 the 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 community’s perception of health. 

To review the 2022-2024 Community Health Assessment, click here. 

To provide comments on the 2022-2024 Community Health Assessment, click here.

The CHIP is another tri-county effort of Genesee-Orleans-Wyoming Counties that describes the collaborative and systematic effort to address health problems based on the results of community input and the assessment activities developed during the Community Health Assessment.  The CHIP identifies evidence-based strategies and evaluates efforts to measure outcomes and progress.

The annual rankings provide a revealing snapshot of how health is influenced by where we live, learn, work, and play. They provide a starting point for change in communities.
