Community Health Needs Assessment

Every three years, Suburban Hospital conducts a community health needs assessment (CHNA) to identify the most current important health issues surrounding the hospital using scientifically valid health indicators and comparative information. This process is executed with a three-tiered approach:

CHNA Process 2019

  1. Collaborating with the Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services and four county hospitals to conduct a county-wide community health needs assessment called Healthy Montgomery.
  2. Engaging health experts by establishing a Community Health Improvement Advisory Council (CHIAC) that advises on the direction of the assessment.
  3. Conducting a community health survey to assess the needs and insights of community members who live in Suburban Hospital's Community Benefit Service Area (CBSA).

The assessment helped to identify priority health issues affecting Montgomery County as a whole and specifically residents of Suburban Hospital’s CBSA. The CHNA report represents Suburban Hospital’s efforts to share information that can lead to improved health status and quality of care for residents, while building upon and strengthening the community’s existing infrastructure of services and providers.

The 2019 Community Health Needs Assessment represents the third iteration of the report since the process was launched in 2013.

Community members are invited to submit their comments and/or questions in response to Suburban’s 2019 CHNA and/or implementation plan via email at or by phone at 301-896-3572.
