The Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) is a federal requirement for private, non-profit hospitals. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act requires all non-profit hospitals exempt from federal income tax to prepare a CHNA at least once every three taxable years. The CHNA must include an in-depth analysis of your community’s needs and an implementation strategy outlining how you propose to address those needs in the coming years.
Please go to the CHNA page to see the report prepared by St. Elizabeth. In order to view the CHNA, you will need to have Adobe Reader installed on your computer.
