Providing the best quality healthcare to our community is at the forefront of everything we do.

Every three years, Yuma Regional Medical Center completes a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) with the goal of identifying and evaluating health-related needs across the communities we serve and using this information in fulfillment of our mission. The assessment examines issues such as risk factors for disease, illness and mortality; community conditions impacting health (education, housing, economics); health inequities; and quality of life.

With information gleaned from assessments, community partners work together to develop a Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) to address priorities, identify community agencies supporting the work and more.

The most recent assessment found that our community’s leading health concerns include mental health, access to healthcare, diabetes and substance abuse. Community input also indicated our greatest impact would come from addressing mental health, access to healthcare, substance abuse, diabetes, heart disease and stroke, cancer, nutrition, physical activity and weight.

Below is a library of our last two CHNAs and CHIPs. All reports have been formally approved and adopted as required by IRS regulations.
