Collaborative Regional Community Health Needs Assessment

The Southeastern PA Regional Community Health Needs Assessment (rCHNA) fulfills federal requirements through the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) for non-profit hospitals to complete a Community Health Needs Assessment and implementation plan to inform their community benefit and community building activities. Coordinated by HCIF, the rCHNA assesses population health and social needs indicators for geographic communities, and engages community residents and stakeholders to gain their perspective on community assets, needs, and proposed solutions.

2022 Regional Community Health Needs Assessment

The 2022 rCHNA identified 12 community health priorities, ranging from mental health conditions to racism and discrimination in healthcare settings to community violence. Click here to access the full 2019 regional Community Health Needs Assessment.

For the 2022 cycle, the rCHNA expanded to include ten health systems and over twenty-five hospitals across the five-county area of Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia counties. The assessment process involves contributions from a wealth of stakeholders, including county health departments; the Philadelphia Association of Community Development Corporations; and the voices of community leaders, community-based organizations, and community residents across the five counties.
