HRiA was contracted to provide services for the Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) and Strategic Implementation Plan (SIP) process for The St. David’s Foundation. This included a regional SIP for the Foundation and four targeted SIPs for each of its member hospitals. The CHNA was data-led, evidence-based, and reflective of key community partnerships.
The SIP process involved four interactive facilitated sessions with participants from each of the member hospitals and leadership from the St. David’s Foundation. The sessions identified needs in the assessment to strategic programming and services offered by each of the entities. St. David’s embraced the new Affordable Care Act requirements to conduct community health needs assessments in the geographies of its medical facilities and to create strategic implementation plans for each facility.
