Community Health Needs Assessment

Midland Memorial Hospital and Midland Health’s commitment to community health is an important part of our mission. We have a proud history of investing in community health programs and partnering with other organizations to identify and address the most urgent health needs of residents of Midland County and neighboring counties in west Texas.

As part of the Affordable Care Act, not-for-profit hospitals are required to complete a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) once every three years. In 2013 and again in 2016, a CHNA was conducted and identified the greatest health needs in our community. The CHNA reports include a comprehensive assessment of Midland County.

The analyses include a careful review of the most current health data available, demographics and input from numerous community representatives. The process culminates in the development of an Implementation Plan to address the significant needs identified through the CHNA. The 2013 Implementation Plan for Midland Memorial Hospital is complete and available to download below; however, the 2016 Implementation Plan is in process and will be available in late 2016 or early 2017.

Midland Memorial Hospital will utilize its 2016 plan as a guide over the next three years to offer programs that support the health of the community and the mission of the organization.

In 2013, Midland Memorial Hospital began a year-long process to conduct a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) to help identify the health needs of the community.

The Hospital’s Governing Bodies and Leadership have determined and prioritized the following health needs, as identified in the hospital’s community health needs assessment report which should be addressed through the implementation strategy noted for each need.
1.            Uninsured / Lack of access to services (cost)
2.            Lack of primary care physicians
3.            Lack of mental health services
4.            Obesity
5.            Diabetes
6.            Heart Disease
7.            Poor nutrition
8.            Physical inactivity
9.            Lack of health education
10.          Lack of specialty health service

These reports are provided below for members of the community to view, print and read. There is also an option to provide feedback via a link in the CHNA report, if desired, in compliance with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA).
