The Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) process helps us identify the community our partner hospitals serve and helps gather quantitative analysis of actual health care issues. This helps us plan and implement programs and services across the region.
The IRS requires non-profit hospitals to conduct a CHNA once every three years to maintain non-profit status. In 2019, ARHP facilitated this process for 9 member hospitals. Hospital CHNAs can be accessed on individual hospital websites.
Simply because of where they live, rural Americans often lack access to critical healthcare services. The Arkansas Rural Health Partnership is a leader in facilitating healthcare delivery to vulnerable populations in Arkansas by providing needed services that address their unique challenges. I applaud their tireless work to ensure the highest possible quality of life for Arkansans.
