El Camino Healthcare District (ECHD) Community Benefit
The El Camino Healthcare District uses information from the most recent 2022 Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) to inform the Community Benefit grant-making process, which is described in the District's annual Implementation Strategy Report and Community Benefit Plan. The CHNA is conducted by El Camino Health every three years in collaboration with other local health systems.
The five health needs selected through the 2022 CHNA being addressed are:
- Healthcare Access & Delivery (including oral health)
- Behavioral Health (including domestic violence trauma)
- Diabetes & Obesity
- Chronic Conditions (other than Diabetes & Obesity)
- Economic Stability (including food insecurity, housing & homelessness)
