Community Health & Benefit Reports

What Is the CHNA?

Under the Affordable Care Act, U.S. hospitals are required to conduct a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) every three years. The assessment’s main purpose is to:

  • Look objectively at the health needs of a community and the resources available to address those needs
  • Prioritize the unmet health needs
  • Create an action plan to address them

The action plan will help shape programs over the next three years.

2022 CHNA


Enloe Medical Center’s Board of Trustees adopted the 2022 CHNA in June 2022.

The assessment’s goals were to:

  • Evaluate the health problems Butte County residents face
  • Invite feedback about priorities being addressed and the effectiveness of those efforts
  • Assess other health needs not being addressed
  • Create an action plan supporting community health
  • Inspire increased collaboration among agencies

The 2022 CHNA report includes an overview of the data gathering process, key findings from focused discussion groups and an outline of the resulting action plan. The report also includes a summary of the 2019 CHNA action plan and response.
