Demonstrating Community Need

A comprehensive Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) was completed in 2013 for InterMedical Hospital. The analysis included a careful review of the most current health data available, demographics and input from numerous community representatives. The CHNA helps to guide InterMedical programs in support of the health of the community and the mission of the organization.
