South Peninsula Hospital is one of numerous partnering agencies working together to improve community health in our local MAPP coalition (Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnership).  MAPP utilizes a local health needs assessment as the foundation of a community health improvement plan, and has just completed the 2016 comprehensive health needs assessment.  Visit the project website at to download a copy of the hospital’s assessment .  In addition to participating at the local level to address the findings prioritized by the community through MAPP, South Peninsula Hospital is working to address many of the findings in ways unique to hospital mission and capacity.  The hospital is developing their action plan based on the newest assessment. An SPH Implementation Strategy was approved at the Board of Directors meeting in June, 2014, which outlines the actions underway from the prior assessment.
