Community Benefit Reports
Learn how our programs and services help improve the overall health of the communities we serve, and provide quality healthcare to all who need it.
St. John Providence (SJP), member of Ascension, is a non-profit Catholic health system comprised of five hospitals and over 125 medical facilities. We are mandated by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to conduct a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) every three years. This assessment was completed jointly for each of the five SJP operating facilities, as allowed by current guidelines. The focus is the geographic service area for each facility which is determined to be the counties where 80 percent of its patients reside. In accordance with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Affordable Care Act), enacted March 23, 2010, SJP will continue to respond to the health needs of our community. The Affordable Care Act requires nonprofit, tax-exempt hospitals to assess the healthcare needs of their communities and to adopt an implementation strategy to address the needs identified every three years. We are deeply committed to improving community health through programs and various community benefit activities.
Community Health Needs Assessment - 2016
CHNA identified health needs for 2016 were prioritized based upon potential long term health outcomes, ability for a health system to have an impact on addressing the need, current priorities and programs, and effectiveness of existing programs. The prioritization process involved a data review and analysis from the SJP's CHNA Steering Committee. The priorities selected are:
- Obesity and Diabetes Prevention
- Access To Care
- Mental Health and Substance Abuse
