Community Health Needs Assessment

On a regular basis, Manning Regional Healthcare Center conducts a Community Health Needs Assessment and develops a strategic implementation plan.

Community Health Needs Assessments (CHNA) and implementation strategies are newly required of tax-exempt hospitals as a result of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. These assessments and strategies create an important opportunity to improve the health of communities. They ensure that hospitals have the information they need to provide community benefits that meet the needs of their communities. They also provide an opportunity to improve coordination of hospital community benefits with other efforts to improve community health. By statute, the CHNAs must take into account input from “persons who represent the broad interests of the community served by the hospital facility, including those with special knowledge of or expertise in public health.”

MRHC most recently completed and posted an updated CHNA in June 2016. That CHNA and supporting documentation can be accessed through the links below. Additionally, paper copies are available upon request at MRHC.
