2018 Community Health Needs Assessment


Provisions in the Affordable Care Act (ACA) of 2010 require tax-exempt (non-profit) hospitals to conduct a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) and develop an implementation plan at least every three years. The regulations for the CHNA include defining the hospital’s service area and compiling demographics and analysis of health indicators; taking into account input from the community, including public health professionals; identifying resources; and prioritizing community health needs. To facilitate this goal, SRMC partnered with West Virginia University’s School of Public Health to complete this needs assessment using a robust community based process designed to engage a broad swath of community members.

We are using the results of this survey, along with other information, to identify the most pressing health issues, which can be addressed through community action.
