Current and Planned Initiatives to Meet Hospital Service Area Needs:
Representatives from Porter Hospital have conducted several dozen interviews during 2012 in an effort to collect information to update our Community Health Needs Assessment as prescribed by the “Affordable Care Act”. We completed the initial draft of this report by September of 2012.
Plan to Update the Community Nees Assessment
Porter Hospital plans to update the Community Health Needs Assessment every three years as outlined by the Affordable Care Act through:
- Ongoing meetings with our "Community Health Needs Assessment Advisory Committee"
- Participation in other local organizations to update the Community Health Needs Assessment
- Continued posting of the community survey on our web site (portermedical.org)
For more information about this Needs Assessment, or to obtain a copy of the 2012 report, please call the Porter Hospital Public Relations office at 388-4744 or click here.
