Community Needs Assessment

In October 2012, Jefferson Hospital received a grant through the State Office of Rural Health and Georgia Southern University to conduct a Community Health Needs Assessment of Jefferson County. As part of The Patient Protection Affordable Care Act (PPACA) signed by President Obama in March 2010, all nonprofit tax exempt hospitals are required to complete a community health needs assessment every three years. The assessment was conducted to identify the most important health issues in the community and develop an action plan designed to address identified priorities.

The CHNA looks at health status, barriers to care, and other demographic, social and economic issues affecting people and organizations in Jefferson County.

We encourage all users to find valuable and relevant information in the reports.
