Community Health Needs Assessment
Keeping a Finger on the Pulse of Walker County's Health
As part of the Affordable Care Act, tax exempt hospitals are required to
conduct a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) once every three years.
In 2013, a Community Benefit Plan (CBP)/CHNA was conducted and in 2017,
a CHNA was completed to identify the greatest health needs in our community.
The 2013 and 2017 reports include a comprehensive assessment of Walker
About the Assessments
The analyses include a careful review of the most current health data available,
demographics and input from numerous community representatives. The process
culminates in the development of an Implementation Plan to address the
significant needs identified through the CBP/CHNA and CHNA. This assessment
and implementation plan was presented to and approved by the Hospital
Board on June 27, 2017. Huntsville Memorial Hospital will utilize its
2017 plan as a guide over the next few years to offer programs that support
the health of the community and the mission of the organization.
