Community Health Needs Assessments & Implementation Plans

Memorial Health’s commitment to its mission to improve lives and build stronger communities through better health is reflected in the Community Health Needs Assessments (CHNAs) and Community Health Implementation Plans (CHIPs) developed by its hospitals. Please explore the links below to learn more about the needs of the communities in which our hospitals reside.

Community Health Implementation Plans Explained

Community Health Implementation Plans FY16-18 and FY19-21 Cycles

IRS regulations, mandated through the Affordable Care Act, regarding Community Benefit for each non-profit hospital, require that:

  • A Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) is published every-three-years.
  • A Community Health Implementation Plan (CHIP) is published every-three-years.
  • The two most recent CHNAs and CHIPs (in addition to the current assessment) are available on the website.

At Memorial Health, a version of the CHIP was published on an annual basis through FY19. Recognizing the CHIP is required every-three-years in conjunction with the CHNA, we no longer published an annual CHIP in FY20 and beyond. We have issued our FY21 CHNA and FY22 CHIP, which covers FY22-24.

A Community Benefit annual report, highlighting the work we implemented to address priority health needs identified in the FY15 and FY18 CHNAs, is available on our website for FY16-FY21. The first year of the CHIP is included on the website for the FY16-18 and FY19-21 cycles. Additional years’ CHIP information, developed during the time we were publishing annual CHIPs, is available upon request.
