Community Benefit Partnerships

Community Benefit Partnerships

Every three years, NCHS and River Bend Hospital commission a community health needs assessment to identify the most critical health needs in the communities they serve. This assessment guides the development of an implementation plan for NCHS community benefit grantmaking. NCHS then solicits partnerships with coalitions, funders, nonprofits, and other entities to directly address community needs identified by the River Bend Hospital Community Health Needs Assessment and other NCHS-initiated needs assessments. Beyond the NCHS capital grants program, these NCHS-initiated community benefit funding partnerships launch, expand, or strengthen programs and services that improve health outcomes and develop healthy communities.
