Baylor Scott & White Health
Community Health Needs Assessments
As a health care leader in Texas, Baylor Scott & White Health continues its legacy of commitment to improving the health of the communities it serves through its attentiveness to understanding their needs and addressing them with a wide range of outreach initiatives.

Baylor Scott & White’s commitment also satisfies federal requirements outlined in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Baylor Scott & White undertook an examination of public health indicators and conducted a benchmark analysis comparing communities served by Baylor Scott & White to an overall state of Texas value to determine the needs of the communities served by the organization.

Interviews and focus groups with key organizations and leaders in the community were held to gain broad input on the health of each community. A ZIP code analysis of demographics, Community Needs Index and other health data improved the understanding of community needs and assisted in the development of Implementation Plans (Plans) designed to address the identified needs of the communities served.

The CHNAs include input from persons who represent the broad interests of the community, having special knowledge of or expertise in public health. The CHNAs will serve as the foundation for community health improvement planning efforts over the next three years, while the Plans will be evaluated annually.

The following community health needs represent those identified across the communities served by Baylor Scott & White. You may view CHNAs by selecting the appropriate location in Central Texas or North Texas.
