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 2020 and 2023, a CHNA was completed to identify the
greatest health needs in our community. The 2023 report includes a comprehensive assessment of Lexington and Richland Counties, South Carolina.
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 31, 2023. ContinueCARE Hospital at Palmetto Health Baptist 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.
