Community Health Needs Assessment

To be eligible for non-profit tax-exempt status, hospitals must document provision of community benefit. The 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires tax-exempt hospitals to have a written financial aid policy. The ACA also requires hospitals to conduct Community Health Needs Assessments (CHNAs) every three years, develop associated Community Health Improvement Plans (CHIPs), and to report annually on actions taken.

Community Benefit Planning Cycle

The FHP Board Executive Committee adopted its most recent CHNA on December 18, 2019. During the spring of 2020, FHP will develop a Community Health Improvement Plan to address the priorities identified in the CHNA.  FHP welcomes feedback on the CHNA report, or input for the CHIP, here: FHPcommunityfeedback@foundationhealth.org.
