UPMC Community Health Needs Assessments

UPMC is deeply rooted in its respective communities, and provides many established programs and services to support community health. In 2016, UPMC 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 actions and implementation plans to improve community health. UPMC hospitals are making measurable progress on each of their health initiatives, demonstrating their continued commitment to improving community health.

Listening Carefully to Our Neighbors

This year, UPMC invited more than 1,500 community stakeholders to help identify their community's most pressing health needs. UPMC partnered with experts from the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health.

Making an Impact

Ofering more than 3,000 community programs, UPMC is out in the community - visiting fire halls, church festivals, and schools. Working with community partners and engaging UPMC systemwide resources - such as UPMC Health Plan - UPMC is improving community health in measurable ways.
