CHH's Community Health Needs Assessment

For more information, please call 304-399-6854

Cabell Huntington Hospital shares a common value ― providing excellent care that promotes lifelong good health. CHH has a long tradition of caring for the needs of the communities it serves. CHH continually assesses how it serves communities and, as part of its mission, is dedicated to on-going education regarding health and well-being. CHH provides a number of outreach activities on a regular basis. 

Community Health Needs Assessments (CHNA) meet the regulatory requirements and guidelines for not-for-profit health care organizations, according to the community benefit provisions for tax-exempt hospitals recently established by the Internal Revenue Service and the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Not-for-profit healthcare providers must conduct a community health assessment at least once every three years. A CHNA must account for the community’s broad interests and include individuals with expertise in public health. The CHNA must be made widely available to the public, and an action plan must be developed that identifies how the assessment findings are being formally implemented.

Cabell Huntington Hospital is pleased to present the 2013 Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) Report for the community it serves, which includes Cabell, Lincoln and Wayne counties in West Virginia, and Lawrence County Ohio ― the counties that have historically been identified as CHH’s primary service area. This report includes a comprehensive review and analysis of data regarding the health issues and needs of the four counties.

Implementation Strategy

Using the information and research gained from the Community Health Needs Assessment, Cabell Huntington Hospital developed an Implementation Strategy to align the needs that we believe we can have the most impact. This strategy will serve as a guide for implementing identified strategies over the next three years that are intended to improve the health of the residents within its target service area.

The Cabell Huntington Hospital Community Needs Assessment and Implementation Strategy were approved by the Cabell Huntington Hospital Board of Directors at a special meeting held on September 30, 2013.
