Community Health Needs Assessment

Midland Memorial Hospital and Midland Health’s commitment to community health is an important part of our mission. We have a proud history of investing in community health programs and partnering with other organizations to identify and address the most urgent health needs of residents of Midland County and neighboring counties in west Texas.

As part of the Affordable Care Act, not-for-profit hospitals are required to complete a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) once every three years. In 2016 and again in 2019, a CHNA was conducted and identified the greatest health needs in our community. The CHNA reports include a comprehensive assessment of Midland County. 

The analyses include a careful review of the most current health data available, demographics and input from numerous community representatives. The process culminates in the development of an Implementation Plan to address the significant needs identified through the CHNA. Midland Memorial Hospital will utilize its 2019 plan as a guide over the next three years to offer programs that support the health of the community and the mission of the organization.

The Hospital’s Governing Bodies and Leadership have determined and prioritized the following health needs, as identified in the hospital’s community health needs assessment report which should be addressed through the implementation strategy noted for each need. 

1. Prevention, Education and Services to Address High Mortality Rates, Chronic  Diseases, Preventable Conditions and Unhealthy Lifestyles 
2. Access to Affordable Care and Reducing Health Disparities Among Specific  Populations
3. Increased Emphasis on Education and Awareness of Existing Health Care Resources  
4. Increased Emphasis on Physician Recruitment and Retention 
5. Access to Mental and Behavioral Health Care Services and Providers 


The reports are provided below for members of the community to view, print and read. There is also an option to provide feedback via the final page of the CHNA report and contact information included below, if desired, in compliance with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA).
