2017 Report to the Community
Community Benefit Reporting
Community Health Network conducts a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) once every three years. The CHNA assesses the health issues within a community and the community’s access to services related to those issues. This allows a hospital organization to plan and implement a strategy to address the health needs of the community it serves.

Community Health Needs Assessment data was analyzed and prioritized using these key factors: feasibility for our hospitals to impact change, health system expertise in the field of the assessed need, and the hospitals' ability to be the most effective with the resources available. The four significant health needs identified in all our communities are:
- Access to healthcare
- Pediatric asthma
- Community-driven initiatives
