Community Health Assessment (CHA)


Community Health Assessment (Click the picture above)

Every five years we come together in the West Central Nebraska area to complete a public health assessment and Community Health Improvement Plan.  During 2015 and 2016, people across the region worked collaboratively to review data, share concerns and strengths of our communities, and identify priority areas that we can work on together to improve the health status for all people living in the West Central region. 

The Community Health Assessment utilizing the process Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnership for the Nebraska West Central region was completed with involvement from a cross section of community organizations and citizens.  The assessment identified three main health priority areas:  Community Ownership, Affordable and Equitable Access to Care and Services, and Healthy Lifestyles and Well-being. 


The community health system goal established through this process is: “Through collaboration, cooperation, and communication, individuals and organizations actively pursue the health and well-being of North Plate and the surrounding communities.”  Reaching the goal in the priority areas is the responsibility of all involved with community health. 


The Community Health Improvement Plan is intended to serve as a road map for the local public health system which includes individuals, schools, hospitals, organizations, and agencies in our communities to promote health.  Many regional groups and work plans are already in place addressing the priority areas and we support continuation of their work.  New actions and partnerships are also encouraged as we continue to move forward in the Community Health Improvement Plan.  We look forward to working with you toward a healthier future for everyone. 

We want to hear from you!

Thank you to our community partners!
