About Wentworth-Douglass

Community Benefits

Assessing the health needs of our community and developing ways to address those needs is one way Wentworth-Douglass helps to improve the overall health and quality of life in our community.  

Every three years, Wentworth-Douglass Hospital conducts a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) and develops an implementation strategy to address the community's top health needs identified through the CHNA.

Based on a comprehensive data assessment and input from community members, the 2019 Community Health Needs Assessment identified nine significant health needs in our service area. These are: 

  • Access to Health Services
  • Heart Disease and Stroke
  • Mental Health
  • Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Obesity
  • Older Adults
  • Oral Health
  • Social Determinants
  • Substance Abuse
  • Tobacco Use

An implementation strategy has been developed to address these health needs over the next several years. This plan includes: 

  • Financial Assistance
  • Expanding Access to Primary Care
  • Care-Van Transportation
  • Educational Events & Health Screenings
  • Funding Community Grants
  • Operating a Community Dental Center
