Community Impact Report
The purpose of a community health needs assessment (CHNA) is to identify the top health issues facing the community that the hospital serves and develop a collaborative plan to improve the health of its residents. The implementation strategy will help the hospital plan the best way to deliver community benefits that are targeted toward the highest priority health needs of the population.
