Don't Jeopardize Your Tax-Exempt Status

Updated: Aug 17, 2021

Community Health Needs Assessment IRS Requirements

To maintain 501(c)(3) tax exemption, hospital organizations are required to complete a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) that actively addresses the significant health needs of the communities it serves.

Your CHNA Implementation Strategy Must:

  • Describe the actions the hospital facility intends to take to address the health need and the anticipated impact of these actions,

  • Identify the resources the hospital facility plans to commit to address the health need, and

  • Describe any planned collaboration between the hospital facility and other facilities or organizations in addressing the health need.


"As a former hospital CEO, I know the importance of conducting the CHNA, as well as prioritizing, and developing sound business plans around your key initiatives."
