Community Health Needs Assessment

Houlton Regional Hospital continues to assess the needs of our local community through surveys with other care providers.  The survey used for our latest assessment is the Maine Shared Community Health Needs Assessment, which covered groups over the entire State of Maine.

The full results were distributed to all participants.  County groups then met to prioritize the issues identified and an Aroostook County specific report was then shared with the results.  These were identified to be:

  • Mental Health
  • Substance Use
  • Access to Care
  • Social Determinants of Health 

We participated with the County groups to evaluate the needs assessment and are currently developing a new implementation plan.  Our last  implementation plan can be accessed using the following link:  Community Health Needs Assessment 

A paper copy can also be provided upon request.
