Public Forums to Discuss County Health Profile
(Tue. 30 Oct, 2018 9:00 am - 10:00 am)

Public Forums to Discuss County Health Profile

Maine Shared Community Health Needs Assessment

Ellsworth, Maine (October 22, 2018) — Stakeholders from across Hancock County have an opportunity this month to shape and select priorities for community health during a special forum aimed at providing input to the region’s healthcare organizations.

The forums will discuss the Hancock County Health Profile.  Community members are invited to attend a forum on Tuesday, October 30, 9:00-11:00 a.m. at the Moore Community Center in Ellsworth.  The Hancock County Health Profile contains almost 200 data points that describe health outcomes, health behaviors, healthcare access and quality, and the social, community, and physical environment that affect our health.  Previous forums were held in 2011 and 2015.

Representatives of Blue Hill Memorial Hospital, Maine Coast Memorial Hospital, and Mount Desert Island Hospital are eager to share this data and get their neighbors’ input about what they see as the county’s biggest health issues.   New this year, the presentation will also include a list of past priorities and what our partners have been doing to address them. This is an exciting opportunity to discuss how we can improve the health of our communities.

The event is free and open to the public. To reserve a seat, please register here: https://www.maine.gov/dhhs/mecdc/phdata/MaineCHNA/find-a-forum.shtml (choose Hancock County).

In addition to collecting input on local health priorities, the forum will also collect information about local resources that could help to address those priorities. Forums and other community feedback will be used as guidance to create new, county-specific health improvement plans in the spring of 2019. As in the past, this forum is an important step in the Maine Shared Community Health Needs Assessment (Maine Shared CHNA).

The Maine Shared CHNA process will roll out in three stages:

County Health Profiles are scheduled to be released in the first week of September 2018. Forums and other outreach are scheduled to be held between September 2018 and January 2019. This includes additional community presentations, conversations and other input.

Final CHNA reports are scheduled to be released in March 2019. These reports will include the County Health Profiles with a summary of the findings and other outreach.

For more information, go to the Maine Shared CHNA website (www.mainechna.org).  The site contains forum schedules, local contacts, County Health Profiles, and a portal for users to create their own data reports to suit their needs. The website will also host the final CHNA reports due out in March 2019. Check back often for updates.

The forums are a collaborative effort among Blue Hill Memorial Hospital, Maine Coast Memorial Hospital, Mount Desert Island Hospital, the Maine CDC, Northern Light Health, and the Downeast Public Health Council.

The Maine Shared CHNA is a unique public-private statewide collaborative effort including these local partners and is supported by Central Maine Healthcare, Northern Light Health (formerly EMHS), MaineGeneral Health, MaineHealth, and the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention of the Maine Department of Health and Human Services (Maine CDC). Funding for the Maine Shared CHNA is provided by the partnering healthcare systems with generous in-kind support from the Maine CDC and our community partners.
