The Ohio State University's Wexner Medical Center (OSUWMC) is proud to be a part of the Central Ohio Hospital Council (COHC). The COHC serves as a forum for community hospitals to collaborate with one another and other community organizations to improve the quality, value and accessibility of health care in the central Ohio region.
In 2013, the COHC conducted the Franklin County Health Needs Assessment to help gain a better understanding of the health needs and priorities of the Franklin County community. While this work started as a hospital initiative, it grew into a collaborative effort among a broad range of local organizations working together to identify, collect and analyze the health indicators contained in the Franklin County HealthMap 2013 report.
Franklin County HealthMap 2013
The Franklin County HealthMap provides the residents of central Ohio with a comprehensive summary of the community's health status and needs. The data will be used to develop and implement strategic plans that meet the community's specific health needs.
Ohio State's Wexner Medical Center developed an executive summary that gives an overview of the assessment; including the identified health needs of Franklin County residents and OSUWMC's plan to address these needs.
