Community Health Needs Assessment

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.
