In the summer of 2021, Bath Community Hospital (BCH) conducted a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) for the residents (approximately 21,000) of Bath, Highland, and Alleghany Counties.
The CHNA was conducted with assistance from Eide Bailly LLP, an accounting and consulting firm specializing in financial, operational, and health-need consulting with healthcare organizations. A CHNA is a tool used to help communities assess their strengths as well as their weaknesses when it comes to the health of the community. It is also the foundation for improving and promoting the health of the community. The process helps to identify factors that affect a population’s health and determine the availability of resources within the community to adequately address these factors and any additional health needs.
