SETTING COMMUNITY-BASED PRIORITIES

Since the passing of the Affordable Care Act, hospitals are now required to perform a community health needs assessment. These assessments collect important information about various health statistics in the community, including the most common medical issues, leading causes of death, and the population’s access to essential medical resources.

Central Valley Medical Center conducted its 2019 Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) for hospital and clinical sites located in Nephi UT and surrounding areas. Based on the CHNA and other data collected, CVMC identified these key priorities, with the following being the top 4:

  • Urology
  • Cardiology
  • Oncology
  • Mental Health

Central Valley Medical Center’s administration and staff are grateful for the support of the community members and agencies for their participation in the process of helping us understand the local community health needs and developing strategies to improve health. Implementation plans in the report address how Central Valley Medical Center will or are currently addressing the identified needs over the next several years.

These Community Health Needs Assessment and Implementation Strategy reports for Central Valley Medical Center fulfill the requirement to make results of the CHNA publicly available.

The Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) is done every three (3) years to identify local area health needs and understand how Central Valley Medical Center can help meet the health needs of the communities it serves.
