To Our Community Members:
Hancock Regional Hospital is committed to providing high quality healthcare and exemplary customer service. Our goal with the attached Needs Assessment is to better understand the range of issues affecting community health needs. We are pleased to present this comprehensive assessment of health care needs in our community. We look forward to working with you to optimize community health and continue meeting the Hancock Regional Hospital mission as caring community partners healing, improving health and wellness, alleviating suffering, and delivering acts of kindness - one patient at a time.
The significance of better understanding our community’s needs was highlighted with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act requirements passed in March 2010. New requirements for tax-exempt hospitals were added to the Internal Revenue Code mandating hospitals to conduct a community health needs assessment and to adopt an implementation strategy to address applicable needs detected during the assessment process.
During 2013, a Community Health Needs Assessment was conducted by Hancock Regional Hospital for the residents of Hancock, Henry, and Rush counties in Indiana. The assessment compiled input from persons who represent the broad interest of the community via individual interviews with health experts and the 2011 Healthcare Community Need and Usage Study. Hancock Regional Hospital will be able to develop an implementation strategy for the applicable needs addressed and the results will be summarized in a forthcoming report.
