Community Health Needs Assessment

Carlinville Area Hospital (CAH) is dedicated to providing a professional medical community and hospital in order to promote excellent healthcare close to home. In the past, the hospital has employed many different methods to assess the health needs of the communities it serves and has adjusted its services to meet those identified needs. Recent changes to federal laws governing not-for-profit hospitals now require Carlinville Area Hospital to conduct a local Community Health Needs Assessment, following specific guidelines, every three years and to report the completion of the assessments as part of their corporate tax filings with the Internal Revenue Service.

Assessing community health needs through a review of available health data and discussion with area health care partners, community leaders and representatives of the many groups served by the hospital give Carlinville Area Hospital and its health care partners the opportunity to identify and address the area’s most pressing health care needs.
