Community Health Needs Assessment

Conducting a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) is a requirement of the 2010 Affordable Care Act and part of the IRS 990 requirement for a not-for-profit health system. A CHNA provides a global view of health within a community and can serve as a catalyst to align expertise and resources to address unmet health needs. Sanford Medical Centers listed below completed CHNAs in their communities and developed implementation strategies to address local health needs. Sanford Health values these partnerships as we all work together to improve the human condition through exceptional care, innovation and discovery. Community Health Needs Assessments were conducted during 2012-2013 and included input from a broad base of community members and leaders. Please contact us with any questions or comments.
