Community Health Needs Initiatives

The Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center's mission reflects a passion for patient care, research and the training of future health professionals. In each of these areas, our mission extends beyond our buildings and direct services to encompass the well-being of the communities we serve. In addition, the Medical Center is committed to meeting the medical needs of our community.

As non-profit institutions, JHHS hospitals aim to fulfill both their mission of community service and their charitable, tax-exempt purpose, especially in the context of new IRS provisions requiring non-profit hospitals to conduct a health needs assessment every three years and develop an implementation strategy to meet the identified needs.

In continuing the Medical Center’s long tradition of community outreach and health promotion, the community health needs assessment offers further direction and focus for our continued efforts. Drawing on the expertise of our clinical departments, we will continue our commitment to community health and our community partners in designing and implementing strategies to reduce obesity, provide prevention and treatment of addiction, meet the health needs of the Latino population and those who do not speak English, and assist those with mental health needs.
