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 2018-2019, for the second 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, Saint Joseph Mercy Ann Arbor, Saint Joseph Mercy Chelsea, and the University of Michigan Health System, conducted a collaborative community health data collection and assessment process in partnership with Washtenaw County Public Health and area health coalitions; the process was facilitated by the Washtenaw Health Initiative.
