Community Health Needs of Union City, California

In 2016, Washington Hospital Healthcare System published a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) as part of the requirements of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The report, which included Union City in the covered area, identified some specific needs related to mental health services in the community. Of the top seven identified priorities, behavioral health was number two.

The definition of behavioral health used in the CHNA included mental health and substance abuse needs. The study specifically noted these issues related to behavioral health.

  • The heavy traffic flowing into hospital emergency rooms from mental health crises is a burden on the healthcare system. For Union City specifically, the rate of ER visits for mental illnesses is 397.8 per 100,000 residents in the population.
  • While most respondents to the survey questions did not see mental health conditions as an illness per se, they did cite a shortage of providers as a significant challenge for the community.
  • Many residents indicated that they would not know where to find information on mental health services or how to contact for this type of help.
  • Of those respondents who had been to the emergency room for a mental health condition, many reported poor follow up care after release and unclear discharge instructions. This was especially true when the patient was a teenager.
  • Residents reported that providers often did not accept their insurance, which was a barrier to accessing care.
