Community Health Needs Assessments

In Fiscal Year 2022, all Piedmont Healthcare hospitals, in collaboration with community and hospital stakeholders, undertook community health needs assessments (CHNAs). These assessments, the result of a comprehensive approach involving the analysis of relevant public health and hospital data, were aimed at identifying and prioritizing the community's health needs. The goal was to determine areas where we could significantly impact our neighborhoods and city.

A key component of the CHNA was to identify the top health priorities we'll address over the next three fiscal years, 2023, 2024, and 2025. Each priority is accompanied by an implementation strategy, which outlines the specific actions we will take to address the identified health needs. These strategies will guide our community benefit work over the specified period.

Beginning in July 2024, we will undertake our FY25 CHNA. We will release additional information – including an update on our upcoming community health survey – then.

Below are the CHNAs and Implementation Strategies for each of our facilites:

In all community benefit work, we will work to achieve greater health equity by reducing the impact of poverty and other socioeconomic indicators. This means we’ve worked into each implementation strategy activities that will address any social, economic and/or racial barriers to good health, lifting the health of all those in our communities by addressing social and economic root causes of poor health.

When possible, we will work to address other issues that arose during the CHNA, even though those are not listed in the above priority list. These include Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and HIV/AIDS. Also, not all our communities will have the same specific priorities. That doesn’t mean an issue isn’t important to that hospital, though, and we’ll work to address all issues in all communities, as we’re able.
