Demonstrating Community Need
As part of the Affordable Care Act, not‐for‐profit hospitals are required to complete a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) once every three years.
In 2016 and again in 2019, a CHNA was conducted and identified the greatest health needs in our community. The CHNA reports include a comprehensive assessment of Montrose County, CO.
The analyses include a careful review of the most current health data available, demographics and input from numerous community representatives. The process culminates in the development of an Implementation Plan to address the significant needs identified through the CHNA.
Montrose Regional Health will utilize its plan as a guide over the next three years to offer programs that support the health of the community and the mission of the organization.
