Community Health Needs Assessment

Our commitment to community

The Children's Hospital Board of Trustees established the hospital's Community Benefits Programs in March of 1998 to address obstacles to the welfare of the community's children. The mission of the program is to eliminate barriers to the health and well-being of infants, children and adolescents. Periodically, the board assesses available community programs and determines gaps in service for potential new program development.

Community Health Needs Assessment

The Metropolitan Hospital Council of New Orleans (MHCNO) contracted with the Louisiana Public Health Institute (LPHI) to develop Community Health Needs Assessment (CNHA) and Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) reports for participating hospitals in the area. The report below summarizes the findings of the joint CHNA for the Greater New Orleans (GNO) area and describes the community health needs identified as top priorities by each of the 10 participating hospitals.

As a result of the CHNA process, each GNO hospital identified three to five significant community health needs as their top priorities. Brief descriptions of each health need are provided below, followed by a list of the specific priorities chosen by each hospital.
