Community Health Needs Assessment

Every three years, each Munson Healthcare hospital completes and submits a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) and implementation strategy to the federal government.

Conducting a Community Health Needs Assessment is the first step in developing a community health improvement plan. The assessment describes a community’s most pressing health needs after analysis of a variety of health-related data. 

Each community’s CHNA serves as a foundation and resource to develop a collaborative plan to effectively address health needs. More than 150 initiatives have been implemented by Munson Healthcare hospitals and community health partners to improve health in our region.

Know the needs. Read the plans. Get involved.

The hospitals of Munson Healthcare invite you to join the effort to improve the health of our communities. Each CHNA includes valuable and relevant community information.
