Community Health Needs Assessment & Implementation Plan 2023-2025 (CHNA)

As part of the Affordable Care Act, non-profit hospitals must complete a Community Needs Health Assessment (CHNA) and Community Health Implementation Plan every three years. Hospitals must collect input from the community, adopt a plan to address community needs, and then report on these activities. A CHNA for 2023-2025 has been developed with other area hospitals and public health departments and is now available.

In 2009, Western Wisconsin Health and St. Croix County Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS) – Public Health joined together to begin assessing and prioritizing health needs in the region through Healthier Together St. Croix County Coalition. In 2015, Pierce County Public Health joined in the leadership of coalition to form Healthier Together Pierce-St. Croix Counties Coalition. The Healthier Together Community Health Needs Assessment and Improvement Plan Process, facilitated by the lead coalition organizations, is a strategic, ongoing, community-based approach for creating and maintaining healthy communities. A steering committee of 60+ coalition members representing diverse organizations and agencies from across the counties provide oversight and guidance. Together, the coalition regularly assesses the state of the two county’s health and works together to implement the health improvement plan. Learn more here.
