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. This assessment was presented
to and approved by the Hospital Board on May 23, 2019. The Implementation
Plan is currently in process and will be completed by November 15, 2019.
Upon completion, 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.
