The Community Health Assessment and Planning Process is a collaborative community effort led by Olmsted County Public Health Services, Olmsted Medical Center, Mayo Clinic Rochester and partnerships with multiple community organizations.  It is a continuous, triennial cycle that assesses our community's health; prioritizes our top community health needs; and plans, implements and monitors/evaluates strategies to improve our community's health. 

The Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) is a comprehensive document that focuses on assessing our community's health and prioritizing our top community needs.
