Community Health Needs Assessment
Southern Regional Medical Center is dedicated to improving the health and
well-being of the surrounding community by blending a passion for healing
with advanced medical technology to deliver the best possible care to
our patients. To thoroughly understand the needs of the community we serve
and in accordance with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act
(PPACA) requirement of tax-exempt hospitals, Southern Regional conducts
a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) every three years. The CHNA
is based on reported quantitative data (e.g.demographics data, mortality
rates, morbidity data, disease prevalence rates, health care resource
data, etc.) as well as input from community leaders who represent the
broad interests of the community served by the hospital facilities. These
individuals offer special knowledge of public health issues, data related
to underserved, hard-to-reach populations, and vulnerable populations
in the southern crescent communities. Data from government and social
agencies provided a strong framework and a comprehensive review for the
2019 Community Health Needs Assessment.
Results from our 2019-2021 CHNA provided a guide for the development of
community benefit programs and hospital implementation strategies for
the next three years.
