Emergency Departments at Horizon’s regional hospitals are extremely short staffed this weekend and priority will be given to trauma and critical care patients. Patients with non-urgent medical issues may experience long wait times.


A Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) is a recognized approach to understanding health and wellness at a local, community level. Through community engagement, a CHNA can define an area’s strengths and needs leading to the identification of local priorities that, when acted upon, can improve the health and wellness experienced by individuals and population groups.
