Community Health Needs Assessment and Community Benefit Report

What is the Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA)?

The Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) is a report based on epidemiological, qualitative and comparative methods that assesses the health issues in a hospital organization’s community and that community’s access to services related to those issues. Not-for-profit hospital organizations are required by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) to conduct a CHNA once every three years.

Community Survey Tool - English / Spanish 

Across all four counties, 19,620 people responded to the Community Survey. Each County started with a core set of 77 questions and some counties included additional questions based on community stakeholder feedback. The Hillsborough County community survey consisted of 81 health and well-being focused questions. Surveys were available in English and Spanish and could be completed online through Survey Monkey or via paper copy (later entered into Survey Monkey manually by trained staff). The results for the responses to the core questions for all four county surveys were combined using statistical processing software and sorted by respondent’s county of residence. The community survey results in this report reflect the results of this combined data analysis. The survey link and PDF files were stored electronically on a webpage to aid in broad distribution by the collaborative members and local community groups.

Key Informant Questionnaire

Key Informant Interviews were conducted via a Survey Monkey questionnaire consisting of eight open-ended questions. 19 key informants identified by the community coalition responded to the questionnaire and represented input from community-based organizations across the region.
