El Dorado County Community Health Needs Assessment & Community Health Improvement Plan:  The Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) lays the foundation for addressing some of the most challenging public health issues facing the County of El Dorado. While health is influenced by such things as individual behaviors, age, genetics, and medical care, it is also influenced by social and economic factors such as education, health insurance, employment and income, and living and working conditions. The community selected the three priority areas to be addressed in the CHIP: mental health and substance use disorder, overweight/obesity and child health. The CHIP identifies strategies to address these priority issues and ultimately improve the quality of life for all El Dorado County residents. 

County Health Rankings and Roadmaps: County Health Rankings & Roadmaps provides data, evidence, guidance, and examples to build awareness of the many factors that influence health. The Rankings are updated annually and look at measures that affect health, such as the rate of people dying before age 75, high school graduation rates, unemployment, air quality, smoking rates and teen births.  

Barton Health Community Health Needs Assessment Report: The Community Health Needs Assessment helps determine the health status, behaviors and needs of residents in the Primary Service Area (PSA) of Barton Health and Barton Memorial Hospital. This includes the City of South Lake Tahoe and surrounding areas, with portions of both El Dorado County, CA and Douglas County, NV. 

Marshall Hospital Community Health Needs Assessment Report: The purpose of the Community Health Needs Assessment is to provide information for Marshall Medical Center’s Community Health Improvement Plan. The assessment further identifies contributing factors that create barriers and opportunities for these populations to live healthier lives.
