Saint Francis Medical Center’s Community Health Needs Assessment

Saint Francis Healthcare System and SoutheastHEALTH recently collaborated on a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) of our shared service area, as required under the Affordable Care Act to comply with federal tax-exemption requirements.

Saint Francis has developed an implementation strategy to address these needs through 2016. Top priorities and health behavorial needs to be addressed include:

  • Cancer (smoking)
  • Obesity (diet and exercise)
  • Chronic Disease (diabetes, heart disease, stroke)

Saint Francis Medical Center wishes to thank SoutheastHEALTH and its other community healthcare partners for helping to gather information. These partners include the county health centers of Bollinger, Cape Girardeau, Scott and Stoddard counties.

Saint Francis Medical Center’s CHNA is now available.
