Community Health Needs Assessment


Demonstrating Community Need


As part of the Affordable Care Act, tax-exempt hospitals are required to complete a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) once every three years. In 2019 and again in 2022, a CHNA was conducted and identified the greatest health needs in our community. The 2022 report includes a comprehensive assessment of Fayette and Lee Counties, Texas.

The analyses include a careful review of the most current health data available, demographics and input from numerous community representatives. The process culminates in the development of an Implementation Plan to address the significant needs identified through the CHNA. The CHNA and Implementation Plan report was presented to and approved by the Hospital Board on April 28, 2022. St. Mark's Medical Center will utilize its 2022 plan as a guide over the next three years to offer programs that support the health of the community and the mission of the organization.
