Community Health Needs Assessment 

An assessment of the health needs of a community involves the analysis of existing data from a variety of sources, as well as the surveying of individuals and interviewing of community leaders. The delivery of healthcare services throughout a community has always required this process in one form or another in order to plan and put into place the optimal mix of inpatient and outpatient services given the resources available to the healthcare organization delivering such services. The hospital facilities of the Akron General Health System have long conducted, and participated in, various forms of assessments of the health of the communities served by those facilities. These assessments have often served as a first step toward mobilizing community leaders and resources around issues impacting community health.

In 2013, each of Akron General Health System’s three hospital facilities performed a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) that conforms to new Internal Revenue Service rules developed as part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. The CHNAs for each hospital facility are published below:
