Community Health Needs Assessments

The purpose of the Community Health Needs Assessment is:

  • To help meet the hospital’s mission of enhancing the health of the people and communities it serves
  • To comply with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 and maintain the hospital’s tax-exempt status
  • To establish community health needs for the hospital’s service area to help prioritize resource allocation
  • To gather data that can be used in other efforts to obtain grants and qualify for awards and certifications
  • To determine what resources are available within Baptist Health’s service area and how the hospital can coordinate activities with other agencies
  • To involve appropriate individuals and groups in the process to ensure needs are identified, efforts are not duplicated, and the correct agencies to handle specific issues are identified in the strategic implementation plan
  • To create a sustainable process for conducting Community Health Needs Assessment that can be replicated and continued for future assessments
