Community Health Needs Assessment Reports

Every three years, Rush Copley Medical Center completes a comprehensive Community Health Needs Assessment process to identify, prioritize, and develop strategies to address the top health issues in the community. During this process, the hospital takes into account input from a number of people representing the broad interests of the community served. This is accomplished through collaborations with the Kane County and Kendall County Health Departments, community focus groups, a community health survey, and additional community input and feedback regarding published and draft assessments and strategies.

The current top health needs identified in the community include:

  • Inequities in vulnerable populations
  • Substance abuse with a focus on opioid misuse and opioid-related deaths
  • Tobacco usage (including smoking and vaping)

The hospital is focusing on implementing strategies to improve these areas of health and wellness in the community.

The reports are available below to view and print.
