Community Health Needs Assessment and Implementation Plan Regional Community Health Needs Assessments (CHNA) & Implementation Plans (CHIP)

Consistent with our mission, core values and vision, CHRISTUS Health is committed to the health needs in each of the communities we serve. Every three years our regions conduct a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) to understand the broad healthcare needs of our communities.  Through this process, we are able to listen to the people we serve as well as other community stakeholders actively working to improve the health and quality of life of the community. We listen in order to gain a better understanding of our communities’ needs and to make the best decision in directing our resources for maximum effect. Upon completion of these comprehensive collaborative needs assessments where specific needs are identified and prioritized, each of our regions develop a Community Health Implementation Plan (CHIP) offering strategies to address specific needs.

The following chart represents a high level summary of the health needs in our various regions. For more details please refer to the needs assessment or implementation plan for that particular region.
