Community Health Needs Assessment
Demonstrating Community Need
As part of the Affordable Care Act, not-for-profit hospitals are required to complete a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) once every three years. In 2013, a CHNA was conducted for Jellico Community Hospital – then a part of Adventist Health System – that identified the greatest health needs in our community. The hospital utilized the additional four and a half months beyond completion of the 2013 CHNA in which to create its implementation plan. With their recent the change of ownership, Jellico Community Hospital was granted a grace period by which to complete its next (2017) CHNA. The CHNA reports include a comprehensive assessment of Campbell County, TN and Whitley County, KY.
The analyses include a careful review of the most current health data available, demographics and input from numerous community representatives. The process culminates in the development of an Implementation Plan to address the significant needs identified through the CHNA. Jellico Community Hospital will utilize its 2017 plan as a guide over the next three years to offer programs that support the health of the community and the mission of the organization.
