Respond to the Community Health Needs Assessment

The SIH Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA), required after the passage of the Affordable Care Act, was first conducted in 2012. The CHNA and development of its implementation plan is a way for SIH and our community partners to work collaboratively to improve the health and well-being of all of the people in the communities we serve. 

Since the 1990's, SIH Community Benefits has been collaborating with community partners and local health departments to complete county-wide community health needs assessments and to assist in the work to address varying health issues. As a result of these long-standing partnerships and community assessments, progress has been made in improving access to care for vulnerable populations through initiatives focused on mental and dental health, transportation, chronic disease screening, prevention and management, cancer prevention and screening, and in addressing the social determinants of health. 

The Community Health Needs Assessment is conducted once every three years by staff and leadership across the SIH health system, along with a diverse group of community partners. SIH is currently accepting responses for the 2024 Community Health Needs Assessment. We hope you will participate in our short 10-minute survey.
