Hospitals serve a critical need in the community. Since 1865, St. Vincent Charity Medical Center has been meeting the unmet needs of the community through its programs and services. One way we determine those needs is through a Community Health Needs Assessment.

2016-2019 Implementation Plan
Based on the data in the 2016 CHNA, St. Vincent Charity Medical Center’s Community Benefit Planning Committee has begun work on a three-year Implementation Plan focused on three priority areas:
- Access to mental health and addiction services
- Obesity and food insecurity (a collaboration with all of the region’s hospitals)
- Quality of care (focusing on culturally appropriate care, health literacy and access)
The St. Vincent Charity Medical Center Community Health Needs Implementation Plan was approved by the Board of Directors on April 7, 2017.
