Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) Plans

    Arkansas Children's Hospital conducts a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) every three years. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) requires nonprofit hospitals to seek community feedback as they develop plans (known as Implementation Strategies) to improve the health of their communities through Community Benefit investments. The CHNAs and Implementation Strategies serve as a foundation for the ACH's strategic initiatives that improve child health by identifying, prioritizing, and planning for evidence-based solutions to address top health needs for children across the state of Arkansas. They allow ACH to partner effectively with other organizations and with communities to make children healthier tomorrow.
