Community Health Needs Assessment

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) of 2010 mandated new IRS requirements for hospitals, to help identify and address community health needs.

In 2021, for the 3rd time, all nonprofit hospitals in Washtenaw County, Michigan collaborated to conduct a single Community Health Needs Assessment for the shared geographic region of Washtenaw County. The hospitals, St. Joseph Mercy Ann Arbor, St. Joseph Mercy Chelsea, and Michigan Medicine, conducted a collaborative community health data collection and assessment.  The process was facilitated by the Washtenaw Health Initiative.
