Passavant Completes Community Health Need Assessment

Posted on: November 16, 2015

Passavant Area Hospital has completed a community health need assessment and placed the document online for the public. The nonprofit hospital identified three priorities for the people and communities it serves in the Morgan County region. They are obesity, mental health and access to care. Completing a community health need assessment is required of nonprofit hospitals by the Affordable Care Act of 2010. The hospital completed a previous need assessment in 2012. To complete the need assessment, Passavant Area Hospital collaborated with the Morgan County Health Department and other health and social service providers that represent the vulnerable members of the community. “A multitude of issues determine the health of a community. No single hospital, agency or governmental body can be entirely responsible for the health of its community,” said Douglas Rahn, president and CEO of Passavant Area Hospital. “We look forward to working with our community partners to address these critical health needs faced by many in our community.” The community health need assessment includes an implementation strategy to address how the hospital will meet these priorities in 2016-18.
