Community Health

East Liverpool City Hospital and Salem Community Hospital came together for the good of the community. The data collected and represented in these reports provides an assessment of the health issues facing Columbiana County. It is our hope that the data will be used as a basis of collaboration between county health care agencies as it provides a comprehensive look at the health conditions that are affecting our county. The information is useful for health care providers, policy makers, collaborative groups, social service agencies, community groups and organizations, churches, businesses and consumers. Individual or groups of agencies can create plans based on the current data to prioritize responses, develop interventions and commit resources. The data itself presents a pictorial overview represented through dashboard dials that includes over 100 indicators from over 12 sources, which represent 20 health topics, overall health, and quality of life.

Implementation Plan

River Valley Health Partners East Liverpool City Hospital developed an Implementation Plan based upon the information gathered and analyzed in the 2013 Columbiana County Health Needs Assessment (CCHNA). The assessment identified regional health care conditions that will help organizations prioritize a coordinated response. The SCH Implementation Plan was approved by the Hospital's Board of Directors in November 2013, as a guide for implementing strategies over the next three years aimed at improving the health status of the residents within the Hospital's Service Area.
