Community Benefit Report

Since forming in 2010, UC Health has committed itself to providing health care services no one else can to the underserved in our region. In only two short years, we have established a solid foundation for giving back to the community. We are proud to share these accomplishments with you through our inaugural community benefit report. In this report, you’ll learn how UC Health connects with the communities where we serve and live. These achievements are made possible by the dedicated physicians, nurses, clinicians and administrators who believe in the commitment to our region as a growing, thriving community for today and for the future.

Community Health Needs Assessments and Implementation Plans

The federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) enacted in March of 2010 requires 501(c)(3) hospitals, including the four licensed hospitals of UC Health, to conduct a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) and create implementation plans that address select needs that are identified in the assessments for tax years beginning after March 23, 2012. In its simplest definition, a CHNA is the ongoing process for a hospital to evaluate the health needs of a community. The CHNAs and implementation plans, which the UC Health Board of Directors approved on May 25, 2016, are available for public review. The below links will take you to the CHNAs and implementation plans for UC Medical Center, West Chester Hospital, Drake Center and the UC Health Surgical Hospital.
