Our Mission

 

Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Hamilton, in conjunction with The Greater Mercer Public Health Partnership, is pleased to present our 2019-2021 Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) for the greater Mercer County region.

The Community Health Needs Assessment is a process that uses quantitative and qualitative methods to systematically collect and analyze data to better understand health within a specific community. The data collected in the CHNA has been reviewed, analyzed, and discussed by stakeholders across the region which includes a coalition of representatives from healthcare, government, business, education, non-profit organizations, and faith-based communities in the Mercer County region supported by Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Hamilton. Communities are typically defined by a geographic area; however, they can also be based on shared interests or characteristics such as religion, race, age, or occupation. People within a community come from different backgrounds and have unique cultures, customs, and values. Utilizing this wide range of ideas and wisdom was a key component of RWJUH Hamilton’s needs assessment.

The mission of the coalition is to work collaboratively to improve the health and well-being of all who live and work in Mercer County. With this data, communities can map out a course for health improvement and create strategies to make positive and sustainable changes in their communities and we eagerly share this information with you our community.

Let’s Be Healthy Together

At our facilities, we do more than treat injuries and illnesses, we provide our community with resources and services that help people live longer and healthier. Our preventive care and wellness programs focus on educating patients on ways they can improve their health and avoid serious medical complications. We take a holistic approach to healing, and strive to help patients feel better physically, mentally, and emotionally.

Your Annual Wellness Visit

Meeting with your primary care physician once a year is an important step that keeps you aware of your body’s current condition and what you can do in the future to avoid health risks. Since this is a general health visit, this is your chance to discuss any medical questions or concerns you have with your doctor. Let them know about any changes you’ve experienced in the past year, and make sure the check your blood pressure, cholesterol, body mass index (BMI) and other “numbers” that are important for your overall health and wellness.

You should also discuss any health screenings you may need going forward. Depending on your age and your family’s medical history, you could have an increased risk for certain types of diseases and cancer. While you can’t always reduce risk factors, you can plan out a screening schedule so that your doctor can diagnose these conditions in the early stages and start treatment before it becomes a major complication.
