Community Health Needs Assessment

Community Health Needs Assessment Reports

Per federal IRS regulations, not-for-profit hospitals are required to conduct community health needs assessments in three-year cycles. MaineHealth hospitals' first cycle was for fiscal years 2013-2015 (more specifically, for October 2012-September 2015).

Below, Community Health Needs Assessment reports are provided for MaineHealth network hospitals. Each report:

  • Provides county-level data on more than 150 health measures – such as rates for smoking, substance abuse, obesity, high blood pressure and childhood immunizations.
  • Summarizes conversations by diverse community stakeholders, who reviewed the data for their county and shared ideas to address pressing health needs.
  • Offers a detailed, three-year action plan developed by each MaineHealth hospital for improving public health in the communities we serve.

Annual progress reports about health improvement actions implemented are also provided below.
