Community Health Needs Assessments

West Penn Allegheny health System - Community Health Needs Assessment 2012

Improving the health of western Pennsylvanians is not only in the best interest of our communities and the region, but also the purpose of the West Penn Allegheny Health System (WPAHS).

In order to improve the health of western Pennsylvanians, we need to understand their health needs. To gain a better understanding of these needs, WPAHS conducted a community health needs assessment (CHNA) in 2012-2013.

Integral to the WPAHS needs assessment was the participation and support of community leaders and representatives. Through steering committee participation, stakeholder interviews and focus groups, these individuals, representing a broad spectrum of perspectives, organizations and fields, generously volunteered their time and shared invaluable insight—thank you! The West Penn Allegheny needs assessment is a collaborative effort, with the communities WPAHS serves at the core.

The WPAHS 2012-2013 CHNA is described in a full report that meets the requirements of the new Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act for tax-exempt 501(c) (3) hospitals. The report identifies health issues and needs in the communities WPAHS serves. In addition, the report provides critical information to WPAHS hospitals and others in a position to make a positive impact on the health of our region’s residents.

The results of the CHNA enable WPAHS and its five hospitals, Allegheny General Hospital (AGH), Allegheny Valley Hospital (AVH), Canonsburg Hospital (CGH), Forbes Hospital (FRH) and West Penn Hospital (WPH), along with other community agencies and providers, to set priorities, develop interventions and direct resources to improve the health of people living in western Pennsylvania. The data in the full CHNA report will serve not only as a useful community resource, but also encourage and catalyze additional activities and collaborative efforts to improve community health.
