Community Health Needs Assessment

Fall River Health Services (FRHS) is seeking accurate information illustrating the needs of our community by initiating a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA). This assessment, in accordance with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010, is performed every three years to:

Classify - identify the essential resources that are already available within our organization,

Analyze - identify the essential resources to be acquired, and

Act - determine how to use, develop, or obtain those resources related to community health needs.

Before we can take action, we need a pulse of the current situation in our community to identify key concerns for action. To do so, FRHS has developed a brief survey that can be completed online or in paper form. Information gathered from this assessment will help FRHS strengthen our foundation for vital planning necessary to build sustainable, improved health and wellness in the communities we serve.

In short, FRHS NEEDS YOU and anyone you know in our community to complete this survey to help identify priority areas of need and develop actionable goals for improving our services. Your voice is an excellent way to become more involved and contribute to the healthcare solutions in our community. Thank you for your support!
