HRMC publishes Community Health Needs Assessment

Varnville, SC (September 25, 2013)
To the Residents of Hampton County:

One of the requirements of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is for not-for-profit (501(c)(3) tax-exempt) hospitals to complete a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) every three years. Over the last six months, we have worked on our first CHNA and, on behalf of the Board of Directors of Hampton Regional Medical Center (HRMC), I am pleased to share it with you.

This report:

  • Presents our analysis of the health issues facing the residents of Hampton County
  • Incorporates input from a broad base of community leaders, health care experts, and residents of our County
  • Assesses the resources available to address key health needs
  • Prioritizes responses to the needs
  • Outlines an implementation plan to address high priority healthcare needs to the best of our abilities

Hampton Regional Medical Center has proudly served this region for over 60 years and we continually work toward expanding and improving our services to better meet your health needs. While Federal regulations require us to conduct a CHNA, I view this study as an important effort to help focus our efforts and encourage other organizations to work with us in addressing high priority health issues.

This report was approved by the HRMC Board of Directors on August 20, 2013. I hope you will take the time to carefully read this report and then let us know if you have questions, suggestions or ideas. We are strongly committed to our mission: “Compassion, Commitment, and Excellence. Every Person, Every Time”.

Sincerely,

Dave Hamill
CEO
