Welcome!

The Healthy Living Map is a collaborative project of Dignity Health member-hospitals, Kaiser Permanente, Sutter Health Sacramento Sierra Region, and the UC Davis Health System. The interactive ZIP Code map houses health and wellbeing data for every ZIP Code in Amador, western El Dorado, Nevada, south Placer, Sacramento, Solano, Sutter, Yolo, and Yuba Counties. You can also find each member hospitals’ Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) and a link to their Community Health Improvement Plan.


The creation of the Healthy Living Map was a collaborative process with:

What is a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) and how often is one completed?
Each nonprofit hospital in the greater Sacramento region conducts a CHNA within its defined service area every three years. Read more The goal of the CHNA is to identify communities and populations experiencing health disparities and also identify contributing factors that create both barriers and opportunities for these populations to live healthier lives.

Where do the data come from?
Both qualitative and quantitative data were collected for the CHNAs. The main sources of quantitative data were CA Dept. of Public Health, OSHPD, U.S. Census, CA Health Interview Survey (CHIS) and other credible sources. Read more Qualitative data were gathered across the nine counties by conducting interviews with public health experts and focus groups and one-on-one conversations with un- and underinsured community residents who shared their stories of the health issues they face and barriers to accessing health care.

How are the CHNAs utilized by the nonprofit hospitals?
Results of the CHNA provide information that is used for each hospital’s Community Health Improvement Plan. Read more These plans are developed every year with the goal of improving the health and wellbeing of residents living in each hospital’s designated service area. Hide

How can you use the Healthy Living Map?
The Healthy Living Map website was created to make health data used to conduct CHNAs accessible to the communities served by each participating nonprofit hospital.

What is the CHVI?
The Community Health Vulnerability Index (CHVI) is a community health-planning tool that identifies communities across a large area more vulnerable to poorer health outcomes. Read more The index combines many of the social determinants of health, such as income level, insurances status, race & ethnicity, education, and housing, and identifies specific ZIP Codes across the region where poorer health outcomes are more likely to be found.
