UPMC Community Health Needs Assessments

UPMC has conducted a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) for each of its Pennsylvania-licensed hospitals in compliance with IRS 501(r) guidelines. Each CHNA incorporates input from community stakeholders and public health experts, and identifies action and implementation plans to improve community health.

To conduct the CHNA, UPMC employed a comprehensive, structured approach facilitated by experts from the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health to:

  • Obtain community input
  • Identify and rank community health needs
  • Develop implementation strategies

Each UPMC hospital is deeply involved in its respective community, and provides many established programs and services to support community health. The CHNA process provided an opportunity to formally engage with public health experts and community stakeholders to discuss community health priorities.

At each licensed UPMC hospital, community input was obtained through a Community Advisory Council or Committee that included community stakeholders. In total, nearly 300 community representatives participated in the CHNA process.

Each UPMC hospital identified significant health priorities, and adopted an implementation plan to improve community health. Click here to see an overview.
