Community Health Needs Assessment

 

Between March 2015 and August 2016, Hallmark Health undertook its second comprehensive Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA), working in collaboration with the Institute for Community Health. The CHNA meets the dual requirements of the Internal Revenue Service, United States Treasury Department, and guidelines for acute care hospitals set forth by the Massachusetts Office of the Attorney General, that mandate hospitals complete a Needs Assessment a minimum of every three years.

The Assessment details insight into the current health status of the nine communities in the Hallmark Health Community Benefits service area, defines our primary and secondary health priorities to be addressed, and identifies opportunities for optimizing population health improvement.

The Report details insight into the current health status of the nine communities in the Hallmark Health Community Benefits service area, defines HHS’s primary and secondary health priorities to be addressed, and identifies opportunities for optimizing population health improvement. It will guide HHS's Community Benefits planning and implementation process over the next several months, as it develops a new three-year Community Benefits Implementation Plan for 2017-19.
