Faith Regional 2013 Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) Report

Faith Regional Health Services welcomes you to review the 2013 Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) as we strive to meet the health and medical needs in the communities we serve.  All not-for-profit hospitals are required to develop this report in compliance with the Affordable Care Act.

The CHNA identifies health and medical needs specific to our service area and provides a plan to indicate how FRHS will respond to such needs.  This document suggests areas where other area organizations and agencies might work with us to achieve desired improvements.  Faith Regional is committed to meeting our obligations to efficiently deliver medical services.

We do not have adequate resources to solve all of the problems identified in the survey that was conducted in our service area.  Some issues are beyond the mission of the hospital and action is best suited for a response by others.  Some improvements will require personal actions by individuals rather than the response of an organization.  The CHNA is a working plan that allows multiple agencies to collaboratively bring the best each has to offer to address the more pressing needs in our area.  This report will guide our actions and the efforts of others to make needed health and medical improvements.

As you read through the CHNA, please think about how you can help to improve the health and medical services our area needs.  We all live and work in communities throughout Northeast Nebraska and by working together our collective efforts can make living here healthier.
