St. Vincent's Commitment to Our Community
St. Vincent’s Community Benefit Programs & Activities are designed to enhance the public health and quality of life in the greater Bridgeport area and improve access to health services for members of the community we serve.
Community Health Needs Assessment
St. Vincent’s is one of the founding members of the Primary Care Action Group (PCAG), a collaboration of area health service organizations whose goal is access to affordable health insurance coverage for all. PCAG led a process from June 2012 to February 2013 to assess the health needs of the Greater Bridgeport community, as part of the larger goal of measurably improving the health of its residents. The result of this comprehensive analysis is the Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA). St. Vincent’s participated with the PCAG to develop a comprehensive Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) to address the major unmet needs in the region. Copies of the CHNA and CHIP are available in the Marketing & Communications Department of St. Vincent's Medical Center or by clicking on the links below. St. Vincent’s welcomes your input to the Community Health Needs Assessment process and encourages you to send ideas, suggestions, or recommendations to: Bill Hoey, MAHCM, LCSW at email@example.com or by mail at 2800 Main Street, Bridgeport, CT 06606. Your input along with information gathered by the PCAG will be reviewed and acted upon regularly
