Every three years, Johns Hopkins Bayview is required to conduct a community health needs assessment to determine what areas the Medical Center needs to focus on to better serve the surrounding neighborhoods.

Based on this information, four priority areas were identified:

  • Obesity
  • Addiction, including tobacco
  • Access to health care for Latino and non-English-speaking populations
  • Mental health, including violence prevention

Many programs are already in place to address these key issues; however, Johns Hopkins Bayview is now seeking feedback from the community and clinical departments to develop new programs that will ultimately improve the health of the people we serve.
