Salinas Valley Memorial Healthcare System is proud to collaborate with partners in the community to best serve the health care needs of the region. Data is the foundation of sound policy development and with reliable data, communities can develop policies leading to healthy outcomes and equal access to social, educational, economic, and health opportunities. The Monterey County Community Health Assessment is one of those catalysts to strengthen and enhance our local health care system. The research and data collection is designed to empower the community, enhance community health and safety and ensure access to all.
