Saint Francis Healthcare System’s Community Health Needs Assessment

Saint Francis Healthcare System completed 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 2019. Top priorities and health behavioral needs to be addressed include:

  • Obesity (adult and children)
  • Cancer
  • Chronic Disease (diabetes, heart disease, stroke)
  • Healthcare Affordability

Saint Francis Healthcare System wishes to thank its other community partners for helping to gather information. These partners include Cross Trails Medical Center, Missouri Delta Medical Center and the county health centers of Bollinger, Cape Girardeau, Scott and Stoddard counties.

Saint Francis Healthcare System’s CHNA is now available.
