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 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.”


As of February 1, 2022, MRHC is again seeking input from the community regarding healthcare needs in order to complete the 2022 CHNA assessment update. VVV Consultants LLC, an independent healthcare consulting firm from Olathe, KS, has been retained to conduct this countywide research. The goal of this assessment update is to understand progress in addressing community health needs cited in past assessment reports while collecting up-to-date community health perceptions and ideas.

To gather community feedback, a short and confidential online survey has been developed. Please utilize the link below to complete this request by March 3, 2022.
