Community Benefit

At Dignity Health, a key part of our mission is supporting the health of our communities in meaningful, measurable ways. It is also part of our mandate as a non-profit healthcare provider under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. That is why each and every one of our hospitals goes to great lengths to study and ascertain the most pressing health needs of the communities they serve. This process and its conclusions are described in a document called the Community Health Needs Assessment, which is updated every three years.

Based on the findings of the Community Health Needs Assessment, each hospital develops an Implementation Strategy to address significant identified health needs.

It is also important to report on the progress of our activities and to update our plans each year. To that purpose, each hospital produces an annual Community Benefit Report and Plan.

Mercy Medical Center Redding proudly makes all three of these reports available to the public.
