Community Health Needs Assessments

To provide meaningful community benefits, Carle solicits information, ideas and perspectives from the residents of the areas that we serve, including community leaders. Through various forms of research, we develop a community benefit plan. Annually, we report back to the community, relating how we addressed the community health needs identified, having prioritized them for action.

With healthcare reform, this activity by hospitals and healthcare systems is now called the Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA). Below is the research currently driving our community benefit activities and what will guide our planning and implementation of community benefits.  
 


Carle Foundation Hospital (Champaign County), 2020-2022

The identified community health priorities in Champaign County are:

  • Behavioral Health – Carle addresses behavioral health needs by recruiting additional behavioral health providers, promoting education and training on mental and behavioral health to help reduce stigma, and working with community partners on youth and adult prevention programs.
  • Obesity – Carle supports activities aimed at reducing obesity by funding programs that promote healthy food options and physical activity, expanding the physical activity prescription program, and providing BMI data to community partners to best measure outcomes.
  • Violence – Carle addresses violence by ongoing work with abuse victims through our SANE and CAST programs, promoting police-community relations and increasing community engagement through partnerships with local initiatives and work groups.

    company to utilize their services for patients, in addition to considering the expansion of care
    coordination services to include transportation.

    the dietician with healthy food education and plans to expand the project into a community
    garden in the near future. Carle Richland has recently dedicated funds to a local community
    walking path and continues to support local sports recreation options for youth.
  • Dental Care – Carle Richland recognizes dental care as a need, especially for those with no
    insurance or Medicaid, however, CRMH is not equipped to address this need at this time. Carle
    Richland would be interested in partnering with the local FQHC as is reasonably possible to bring
    these services to the community.
