Community Health Needs Assessment

Meeting the healthcare needs of the community lies at the heart of the St. John mission. 

Community Health Needs Assessment

IRC Section 501(r) requires healthcare organizations to assess the health needs of their communities and adopt implementation strategies to address identified needs. Per IRC Section 501(r), a byproduct of the Affordable Care Act, to comply with federal tax-exemption requirements, a tax-exempt hospital facility must: 

  • Conduct a community health needs assessment every three years 
  • Adopt an implementation strategy to meet the community health needs identified through the assessment
  • Report how it is addressing the needs identified in the community health needs assessment and a description of needs that are not being addressed with the reasons why such needs are not being addressed

The community health needs assessment must take into account input from persons who represent the broad interest of the community served by the hospital facility, including those with special knowledge of or expertise in public health. The hospital facility must make the community health needs assessment widely available to the public.
