Community Health Needs Assessment
What is a Community Health Needs Assessment?
Lourdes Health participates in a local process to assess community wide health priorities in collaboration with a multitude of community partners. This process and resulting report is called a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA), and is completed every three years. The CHNA helps determine which critical health needs the community will focus on addressing over the next 3-5 years. It is a systematic and shared process for identifying and analyzing community needs and assets throughout Benton and Franklin counties.
The 2019 CHNA is the result of dozens of stakeholder interviews and focus groups, hours upon hours of research, and multiple community and partner surveys.
