As a non-profit hospital in compliance with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, St. Luke's has conducted a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA), that helps us to better understand the needs of the people we serve, even after they leave St. Luke's. Focus groups were held with key stake holders in the community (Community Partners, Patients/Family members & Support Groups, and Community programs and services that overlap with St. Luke's), with the needs identified by the focus groups aggregated into a CHNA Report.
This document reports to community members and others what the broader Spokane County community has identified as community health needs and how St. Luke’s, in collaboration with others in the Spokane community, intends to address those needs. The end goal is to improve the health of the community, especially among the most vulnerable populations due to disability or socioeconomic challenge.
