South Lake Tahoe Health Gaps Identified

Barton Health’s commitment to our community's health is an integral part of our mission. Each year we are proud to invest in community health programs and partner with other local organizations to identify and address the unmet needs of a medically underserved population in South Lake Tahoe.

Barton Health collected public health data in spring of 2018 to help identify the major health gaps throughout South Lake Tahoe. The information was gathered through phone surveys and online surveys. With the participation of 400 area residents, the statistics will be used to help Barton Health identify areas of opportunity and improvement for our local population, as well as foster partnerships and health grants to help meet the outstanding medical needs of our community. This survey is conducted every three-years, the previous being in the spring of 2015 and 2012.

The Community Health Needs Assessment is a comprehensive report that highlights South Lake Tahoe’s most pressing health needs. It is based on data collected from community surveys, input from local service agencies, and national data. The top three issues identified all three assessments has been mental health, substance abuse and access to care.

With the results gathered from the Community Health Needs Assessment, the Community Health Advisory Committee will now prepare an action plan for the next three years to address the area’s most pressing health needs. The plan emphasizes community collaboration and relies on the diverse services and strengths within the community. Community partnerships are critical for achieving community-based solutions.
