Community Health Needs Assessments

The Zephyr team has 30+ years experience performing Community Health Needs Assessments.

We have assisted hundreds of communities nationwide to achieve their goals through a robust Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA), which is required every 3 years for not-for-profit hospitals. By compiling and analyzing quantitative and qualitative elements, Zephyr Healthcare Advisors creates a roadmap for hospitals and their communities to calibrate needs and develop community benefit strategies.


  • Define Your Community: Help set the area and scope of the assessment and what parties should be involved.
  • Identify Your Assets: People, organizations and associations, locations, and tools that can be valuable resources when conducting the assessment.
  • Collect Community Data and Input: Collect qualitative and quantitative data through interviews, focus groups, and surveys.
  • Compile/Prioritize Community Needs: Outline strengths, challenges, needs and opportunities in the community.
  • Create an Action Plan: Supply recommendations in policy or guidance, larger system changes, and/or social, economic, or physical changes. Identify resources and programs to help address needs.
