Community Health Needs Assessment

Every three years, all of our licensed hospitals complete comprehensive Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) to guide the development of strategies to meet priority needs. This process complies with regulations in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act that have also expanded health insurance availability for millions of Americans. The CHNA is a systematic process involving the community, to identify and analyze community health needs and assets in order to prioritize these needs, and to plan and act upon unmet community health needs. Differs from community needs assessments used to identify physician needs. The implementation strategy is the hospital’s plan for addressing community health needs, including health needs identified in the community health needs assessment.  (The implementation strategy is also known as the hospital’s overall community benefit plan.)
