Our Programs

John Muir Health supports vibrant and healthy communities through strong partnerships with nonprofit organizations, schools, clinics, and other community-based providers to address our community's most pressing needs.

Community Health Needs Assessment

Every three years John Muir Health and other community hospitals collaboratively conduct a community assessment to identify changes in demographics and health issues so that their community benefit programs can be focused on the populations most at risk.
