Health Council of Southeast Florida
December 27, 2013

The Heath Council of Southeast Florida (HCSEF) along with the Palm Beach County Health Department are pleased to announce the release of the first phase of the Palm Beach County Community Health Assessment. This assessment is a result of the effort, participation, and contributions of a cross section of health and human service organizations, community leaders and stakeholders that came together around the commitment to improve services for the betterment of the community.

A community health needs assessment is a systematic method of identifying unmet health care and human service needs of a population and identifying possible interventions to meet those needs. In 2012, the Palm Beach County Health Department engaged the Health Council of Southeast Florida to facilitate a comprehensive, county-wide health needs assessment for Palm Beach County.

The report includes secondary data from national, state and local sources. It also includes primary data that encompasses the community’s perspective.
