Community Health Needs Assessments (CHNA)
A community health needs assessment (CHNA) is a formal process of collecting and analyzing health data and then assessing the needs in a defined community based on these data. St. Luke’s Hospital has participated in formal county CHNA processes since 1999 and has now expanded the process to include increased collaboration with community organizations to collectively improve the health of the communities we serve. All hospitals are required to conduct a CHNA at least once every three years and adopt an implementation strategy to meet the community health needs identified through the CHNA. The CHNA takes into account input from persons who represent the broad interests of the community served by the hospital facility, including those with special knowledge of or expertise in public health. The CHNA must also be made widely available to the public, so we have provided a link below to the CHNA document for St. Luke’s Hospital. A hard copy of this document may also be obtained by emailing your request to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
