Our Community Commitment
Community Health Needs Assessment
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) requires non-profit hospitals, such as Allen Hospital, to conduct a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) for our community.
The CHNA process identifies key issues affecting health in our community, as well as health problems people in our community experience. This provides Allen Hospital with a foundation to develop a proactive plan to address those needs.
UnityPoint Health – Allen Hospital has partnered with Black Hawk County Gaming Association, Black Hawk County Public Health Department, Cedar Valley United Way, MercyOne-Waterloo, Peoples Community Health Clinic of Waterloo, SuccessLink, and the University of Northern Iowa Departments of Library and Political Science to support these new requirements and has identified the major health and socioeconomic issues that affect the 10 counties that Allen Hospital serves.
