Community Health Needs Assessment
The 2016 Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) examines the overall health needs of the residents of the Nash Health Care community. While Nash Health Care (NHC) has historically assessed the health needs of the community and responded accordingly, this CHNA is another step in NHC’s efforts to identify and respond to the needs of its community.
As outlined throughout this document, a significant amount of data and information have been reviewed and incorporated in this planning process, and NHC has been careful to ensure that a variety of sources were leveraged to develop a truly comprehensive report. It is also important to note that, although unique to NHC’s identified community, the sources and methodologies used to develop this report comply with CHNA guidelines provided in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA).
