Understanding Community Health

Community Health Needs Assessments (CHNAs) are vital tools for gaining insight into the disparities in health outcomes across regions, understanding how various health factors interact to influence these outcomes, and evaluating the effectiveness of current policies and programs in promoting health equity. Through community participation in the CHNA process, we identify key health needs to prioritize in our Community Health Improvement Planning.

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) mandates that tax-exempt hospitals conduct these assessments and develop implementation strategies every three years. Compliance with Section 501(r)(3) requires hospitals to have an authorized body adopt a documented CHNA that is accessible to the public and open for feedback.
