Demonstrating Community Need

As part of the Affordable Care Act, not-for-profit hospitals are required to complete a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) once every three years. In 2013, a CHNA was conducted and identified the greatest health needs in our community. The CHNA report includes a comprehensive assessment of Campbell County, TN and Whitley County, KY.

The analysis includes a careful review of the most current health data available, demographics and input from numerous community representatives. The process culminates in the development of an Implementation Plan to address the significant needs identified through the CHNA. Jellico Community Hospital will utilize its 2013 plan as a guide over the next three years to offer programs that support the health of the community and the mission of the organization.

The hospital utilized the additional four and a half months beyond completion of the CHNA in which to create its implementation plan. Additionally, with the change of ownership, Jellico Community Hospital had a grace period by which to complete its next CHNA which is currently in process and will be completed by June 30, 2017.
