For nearly 150 years, St. Vincent Charity Medical Center has been committed to serving the needs of the community by extending the healing mission of Jesus. Inspired by the example of our founders, the Sisters of Charity of St. Augustine (CSA), we have a legacy of identifying and serving the unmet needs of the community.

One of the tools we use today to assist in that effort is the Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA). The Cuyahoga County Health Partners, comprised of member hospitals and healthcare providers of the Center for Health Affairs, came together to commission the 2012 Cuyahoga Community Health Needs Assessment This comprehensive survey tool identified specific health needs in the community.

Based on data gathered from this unique county-wide collaboration, the St. Vincent Charity Medical Center Community Benefit Planning Committee met over a period of months to define priority health issues that the hospital will address. This process allows us to focus our resources toward prevention, education, wellness and outreach that will have the greatest impact on the community we serve.

The St. Vincent Charity Medical Center Board of Directors approved the Community Health Needs Implementation Plan on October 2, 2013. Read our full plan here.
