Community Health Needs Assessment

 

Demonstrating Community Need

 

As part of the Affordable Care Act, tax exempt hospitals are required to conduct a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) once every three years. In 2013, a Community Benefit Plan (CBP)/CHNA was conducted and in 2017, a CHNA was completed to identify the greatest health needs in our community. The 2013 and 2017 reports include a comprehensive assessment of Walker County, Texas.

 

The analyses include a careful review of the most current health data available, demographics and input from numerous community representatives. The process culminates in the development of an Implementation Plan to address the significant needs identified through the CBP/CHNA and CHNA. This assessment and implementation plan was presented to and approved by the Hospital Board on June 27, 2017. Huntsville Memorial Hospital will utilize its 2017 plan as a guide over the next few years to offer programs that support the health of the community and the mission of the organization.
