Community Health Needs Assessment & Implementation Plan 2020-2022 (CHNA)

As part of the Affordable Care Act, non-profit hospitals must complete a Community Needs Health Assessment (CHNA) 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 2020-2022 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. The St. Croix County Community Health Improvement Process, facilitated by both of these organizations, is a strategic, ongoing, community-based approach for creating and maintaining healthy communities. A steering committee of 25+ members representing diverse organizations and agencies from across the county provides oversight and guidance. Together, the committee regularly assesses the state of the county’s health.
