Community Health Needs Assessment

Demonstrating Community Need 

As part of the Affordable Care Act, tax-exempt hospitals are required to conduct a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) once every three years. In 2018, the first CHNA for Carolinas ContinueCARE Hospital at University was conducted and identified the greatest health needs in our community. The CHNA report includes a comprehensive assessment of Cabarrus County, North Carolina.

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. Carolinas ContinueCARE Hospital at University will utilize its 2018 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.
