Community Health Needs Assessment
Demonstrating Community Need
As part of the Affordable Care Act, tax-exempt hospitals are required to complete a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) once every three years. In 2017 and 2020, a CHNA was completed to identify the greatest health needs in our community. The 2020 report includes a comprehensive assessment of McCracken County, Kentucky.
The analyses include 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. This assessment was presented to and approved by the Hospital Board on May 6, 2020. ContinueCARE Hospital at Baptist Health Paducah will utilize its Implementation 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.
