In order to understand the health needs of the communities we serve and best prioritize our healthcare efforts, MedWest Health System conducted a Community Health Needs Assessment (“CHNA”) for MedWest-Harris and MedWest-Swain. The assessments were conducted in conjunction with area health departments and as part of the regional WNC Healthy Impact collaboration. The determination of community health needs took into account community demographics, socio-economic factors and community input. The assessment and report are in alignment with the federal IRS community benefit reporting requirements that affect all State-licensed 501(c)(3) hospitals. The priorities identified in the assessment have been accepted by the MedWest Board of Directors.
