Community Health Needs Assessment

CHNA

In January 2000, the Department of Health and Human Services launched Healthy People 2010, a comprehensive, nationwide health promotion and disease prevention agenda.  That initiative contained objectives designed to serve as guidelines for improving the health of the American people.  The Department of Health and Human Services has since moved to a new initiative called Healthy People 2020.

On March 23, 2010 a new mandate was added to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act requiring hospitals to conduct a "community needs assessment" and adopt an "implementation strategy" to meet the needs identified by the assessment/survey at least once every three years.

Providing quality healthcare to the Greater Passaic Community for over a century, St. Mary's Hospital is committed to ensuring that a full continuum of high-quality, coordinated health and human services are readily accessible to those who live in its service area.
