Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP)

The overall goal of this Community Health Improvement Plan is to address chronic conditions that affect the health of our community. The CHIP outlines key objectives and strategies that address determinants of health and improve health equity.  This plan is one of the necessary documents for NVHD’s national accreditation.

This roadmap for improved health results from the consistent dedication of numerous Valley partnerships, working together in a collaborative planning process.  More than 75 stakeholders reviewed the top concerning public health issues identified in the 2019 Valley Community Health Index, resulting in identification of the following key health priorities for the Valley. We invite all residents of the Naugatuck Valley towns to learn about these planned actions to enhance community health.

  • Priority 1: Behavioral Health
  • Priority 2: Heart Health
  • Priority 3: Maternal and Infant Health

The published CHIP is forthcoming and will be complete late fall 2019.
