In late 2014, Tucson Medical Center joined forces with Tucson’s neighboring hospitals, as well as the Pima County Health Department and other community stakeholders on the 2015 Pima County Community Health Needs Assessment.
The Affordable Care Act’s requires tax-exempt, nonprofit hospitals to complete a community health needs assessment every three years and to implement strategies to address the needs identified in the report.
The resulting 96-page assessment draws from county health rankings, the Arizona Department of Health Services Vital Statistics, Primary Care Area Statistical Profiles and the U.S. Census Bureau. Additionally, community input was included following interviews, focus groups, community forums and a web-based community health survey.
Following the completion of the assessment, TMC developed an implementation plan to respond its findings. If you have specific input on this report that you would recommend TMC consider, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
