Community Health Needs Assessment

TCHNetwork conducted a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) in late 2021, a regional survey designed to better understand the health-related needs of people who live or work in San Miguel, Ouray, the West End, and Delta counties. We received responses from 1,178 community members representing a diverse population.

While we did not specifically target “east end” of Montrose County residents, we did receive some responses from Montrose and Olathe community members.  If you would like to learn more about how we conducted outreach to complete the survey, please read about our approach here


The goals of the survey were to identify the health-related needs of our community members, learn more about the services community members are utilizing, and see if there are needs community members have that are not being met by existing resources.  

To share the CHNA results with our partners and community members we launched an interactive tool on our website where you can explore results by different categories. For example, you can see how many of our respondents in each county reported experiencing depression, then drill down to see different characteristics like the towns people live in, their median income, and the types of services they want to see offered in their community. Instructions for how to navigate the tool are available here.  

We hope you will take the time to explore the data and the valuable input from our community members! 

If you have any questions or are interested in getting more detailed information about our Community Health Needs Assessment results, please contact TCHNetwork at  

Thank you to all our community members who took the time to complete the survey, our partners who helped spread the word about the survey, and our team who conducted outreach to different community members!
