Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA)

Northwest Hospital & Medical Center has undertaken a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) as required by federal law. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and IRS section 501(r)(3) direct tax exempt hospitals to conduct a community health needs assessment and develop an Implementation Strategy every three years.

The Community Health Needs Assessment is a primary tool used by Northwest Hospital to determine its community benefit plan, which outlines how it will give back to the community in the form of health care and other community services to address unmet community health needs. This assessment incorporates components of primary data collection and secondary data analysis that focus on the health and social needs of the service area.
