Community Health Needs Assessment

Demonstrating Community Need

As part of the Affordable Care Act, tax-exempt hospitals are required to complete a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) once every three years. In 2017 and 2019, a CHNA was completed to identify the greatest health needs in our community. The 2019 report includes a comprehensive assessment of Walker County, Texas.

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 CHNA. The CHNA report was presented to and approved by the Hospital Board on May 23, 2019, and the Implementation Plan was presented to and approved by the Hospital Board on September 26, 2019. Huntsville Memorial Hospital will utilize its Implementation Plan as a guide over the next three years to offer programs that support the health of the community and the mission of the organization.
