|We are committed to the health of our communities and continue to engage in dialogue and strategic planning to ensure the needs of our patients are met. |
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act requires 501(c)(3) hospital organizations to conduct a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) at least once every three taxable years. We appreciate the time our community takes in helping us gather information on healthcare needs in Delaware County.
Delaware County Public Health (DCPH) conducts a CHNA every five years. In 2016, DCPH and RMC were able to pool resources and knowledge across many specialties such as dietitians, direct care providers, administration, and marketing while at the same time having direct communication with social service and service providers in the community to conduct the CHNA.
