The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) of 2010 mandated new IRS requirements for hospitals, to help identify and address community health needs.
Under these requirements we conducted a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) in 2011-2012, in collaboration with community partners. In response to our findings, we developed and adopted an Implementation Plan in 2012 to address priority health needs. We will repeat this effort at least every three years.
