Community Health Needs Assessment

Midland Memorial Hospital and Midland Health’s commitment to community health is an important part of our mission. We have a proud history of investing in community health programs and partnering with other organizations to identify and address the most urgent health needs of residents of Midland County and neighboring counties in west Texas. In 2013, Midland Memorial Hospital began a year-long process to conduct a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) to help identify the health needs of the community.


The Hospital’s Governing Bodies and Leadership have determined and prioritized the following health needs, as identified in the hospital’s community health needs assessment report which should be addressed through the implementation strategy noted for each need.

1.            Uninsured / Lack of access to services (cost)

2.            Lack of primary care physicians

3.            Lack of mental health services

4.            Obesity

5.            Diabetes

6.            Heart Disease

7.            Poor nutrition

8.            Physical inactivity

9.            Lack of health education

10.          Lack of specialty health service

These reports are provided below for members of the community to view, print and read. There is also an option to provide feedback via a link in the CHNA report, if desired, in compliance with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA).
