General Information

  • Demonstrating Community Need

    As part of the Affordable Care Act, non-profit hospitals complete a community needs health assessment (CHNA) every years. Hospitals must collect input from the community, adopt a plan to address community needs and then report on these activities. Wills Memorial Hospital has now completed two CHNA reports.

    In 2013 and again in 2016, a CHNA was conducted and identified the greatest health needs in our community. The CHNA reports include a comprehensive assessment of the Lincoln, Taliaferro, and Wilkes Counties.
