Community Health Needs Assessment

Children’s Hospital Los Angeles conducts a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) every three years in an effort to continually understand the health and social needs of the community. California Senate Bill 697 and the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and IRS section 501(r)(3) require nonprofit hospitals to conduct a community health needs assessment and subsequently develop an Implementation Strategy every three years. The CHNA is a primary tool used by the hospital to determine its Community Benefit Implementation Strategy (CBIS). This assessment incorporates components of primary data collection and secondary data analysis that focus on the health and social needs of the service area.

CHNA Dashboard

The Community Health Needs Assessment Dashboard is a resource for patients, families, and caregivers to learn about the challenges and opportunities in their Los Angeles neighborhoods. By understanding trends across education, employment, housing, and other domains, stakeholders are better positioned to advocate for policies and programs that improve their quality of life.

Community Benefit Implementation Strategy

As a result of the CHNA, health and social needs were identified through an examination of primary and secondary data and then prioritized through a structured process using defined criteria. Through this process, we developed CHLA’s Community Benefit Implementation Strategy (CBIS).
