Community Health Needs Assessment and Implementation Plan

Community Benefit

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 Community Health Needs Assessment

In 2016, St. Vincent Charity Medical Center was proud to partner with the Center for Health Affairs to conduct the Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) for St. Vincent Charity Medical Center.

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.
