Community Health Needs Assessment
Demonstrating Community Need
As part of the Affordable Care Act, not-for-profit hospitals are required to complete a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) once every three years. In 2016, a CHNA was conducted and identified the greatest health needs in our community. The CHNA report includes a comprehensive assessment of Morehouse Parish.
The analysis includes 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. Morehouse General Hospital will utilize its 2016 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.
Please address any written comments on the 2016 CHNA and Implementation Plan or requests for a paper copy to:
