Community Health Needs Assessments (CHNA) be
undertaken at least once every three years by every
not-for-profit hospital. The requirement is effective for
tax years beginning after March 2012.
• Conduct a CHNA every three years and adopt an
implementation strategy that addresses the health
needs identified through such assessment.

represent the broad interests of the community
including public health, and be made available to the
public.
