Healthcare needs assessment available

From press reports

Winston Medical Center is committed to meeting the health needs of the community and one of the ways that they are striving to ensure that commitment is by conducting an assessment of the communities’ health needs.

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act requires nonprofit hospitals to conduct Community Health Needs Assessments (CHNAs), and to make these reports accessible to the public.

Winston Medical Center conducted a community health needs assessment and sought input from the community.

Winston Medical Center is pleased to provide to the community the 2013 Community Health Needs Assessment on its website which may be viewed at www.winstonmedical.org

“Conducting these assessments and making them available to the public meets the obligations under these new federal requirements. More than that, these assessments reflect Winston Medical Center’s commitment to working with people in our communities to identify and address the most urgent health needs in the communities we serve,” stated Lee McCall, CEO.
