Community Health Needs Assessment

Saint Francis Healthcare System periodically completes a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) of its 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 2022. Top priorities and health behavioral needs to be addressed include:

  • Obesity (adults and children)
  • Heart Disease (hypertension, diabetes, cholesterol)
  • Mental Health (substance abuse, depression, bipolar disorder)
  • Cancer (breast, prostate, colon/rectum, lung cancer)
  • Healthcare Affordability

Saint Francis Healthcare System wishes to thank its community partners for helping to gather information.
