Community Health Needs Assessment

Demonstrating Community Need

As part of the Affordable Care Act, tax exempt hospitals re required to complete a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) once every three years.  Community Hospital conducted CHNAs in 2016 and 2019, and identified the greatest health needs in our community.  The 2019 report includes a comprehensive assessment of Red Willow County, Nebraska.

The analyses include a careful review of the most current health data and demographics available, as well as input from numerous community representatives.  The process culminates in the development of an Implementation Plan to address the significant needs identified through the CHNA.  Community Hospital will utilize its 2019 plan as a guide over the next three years to offer programs that support he health of the community and the mission of the organization.
