In order to gauge the overall health needs of Fremont County residents, George C. Grape Community Hospital, in conjunction with Fremont County Public Health, invites all community members to participate in a Community Health Needs Assessment Town Hall roundtable.
The goal of this assessment is to understand progress in addressing community health needs cited in the 2016 CHNA report and to collect up-to-date community health perceptions for the 2019 report. Feedback from the meeting will serve to fulfill both federal and state mandates.
Note: ACA legislation requires all tax-exempt hospitals to submit a CHNA to the IRS every three years, regardless of hospital affiliation. Each hospital, even those that serve overlapping populations, must submit a separate CHNA.
