Community Health Needs Assessment

Serving Communities in North Central Arkansas and South Central Missouri

Since the implementation of the Affordable Healthcare Act, tax-exempt hospitals have been required to conduct thorough assessments into the health needs of their local communities and utilize effective strategies to address these needs. Our extensive research often digs up important information pertaining to our community and what could be improved upon. We work hard, every day, to ensure our patients and community are getting the highest quality of care possible. We are continually striving to get better and we want you to help us. If you believe there is an area of community need that should be addressed by our hospital, contact us online today.

In compliance with Section 501(r) of the Internal Revenue Code (IRC), a tax-exempt hospital must:

  • Conduct a thorough community health needs assessment once every three years.
  • Implement and utilize a strategy that would address the community health needs identified in the assessment.
  • Report on how the strategy is working to address the needs identified in the assessment, along with a description of which needs are not being addressed and why.

Baxter Regional’s compliance with IRC Section 501(r) is documented in our community health needs assessments. We identify and prioritize the community’s health needs in each assessment in order to determine which matters are the most pressing for us to address. We work to improve all aspects of our wonderful community’s health and we always take our patient’s recommendations into consideration. We know just how great our community is and we want to make it even better. To help us achieve our goal, please bring our attention to any perceived community health needs. Let’s get better together.
