Community Health

On behalf of East Liverpool City Hospital (ELCH) and the Columbiana County Health Partners, the following Community Health Needs Assessments were conducted in collaboration with area organizations including a partnership with Salem Regional Medical Center. The data collected, analyzed, and represented in these reports are a direct reflection of the community health issues currently being faced in 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 currently 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. This data was derived from multiple government, state, and local level resources including a community survey, focus groups and stakeholder meetings. We are “your hospital” and we will continue to support the health of our local communities by endorsing and participating in public health.
