Health Needs Assessment & Implementation Plans

To provide a deeper understanding of our communities’ primary health needs, and to develop an implementation strategy to address these needs, every three years Centra sponsors Community Health Needs Assessments (CHNAs).   The 2018 assessments were undertaken by the collaborative Partnership for Healthy Communities, supported by Centra, Centra Foundation, Community Access Network, Centra Virginia, Piedmont and Pittsylvania/Danville Health Districts, Greater Lynchburg Community Foundation, Johnson Health Center and United Way of Central Virginia. 

The completion of our community health needs assessments and successful implementation of our resulting action plans will allow us to be in compliance with requirements for tax-exempt hospitals as created by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and as promulgated in regulation by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

We publish our CHNAs and Implementation Plans to inform the community of our activities to improve the health and well-being of the communities in which we serve.
