Community Medical Centers publically reports how we use our funds and resources to benefit the community above and beyond the services we provide to our patients in our facilities. We call this our "community benefit."

Providing services and education that benefit Central Valley families has been a part of our mission for more than a century. We’ve historically spent more on uncompensated community benefits than all other Fresno-area hospitals combined.

2019 Community Health Needs Assessment

The 2019 Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA), is a joint effort among more than a dozen hospitals in Fresno, Kings, Madera and Tulare counties and facilitated by the Hospital Council of Northern & Central California. Together we have worked to address the most pressing health needs of our region.

More than 1,000 community members, leaders and key stakeholders representing low-income and vulnerable populations provided primary data through focus groups, one-on-one interviews and an online survey. Secondary data reported by federal and state sources was also referenced. This study is one of three parts of a federally mandated report required of all tax-exempt hospitals every three years, but in our region we view this as an opportunity to partner with local organizations to improve health outcomes for the entire Central Valley.

Implementation Plan FY 2019-2021

Part two of the CHNA is Community Medical Centers' Implementation Plan for fiscal years 2019-2021, which was approved by our Board of Trustees and outlines our plan to address health needs identified in the 2019 CHNA. The Implementation Plan lays out our sincere effort to invest in initiatives to improve the health status of our region and to partner with local stakeholders committed to the same mission.

Evaluation of Impact FY 2016-2018

Part three of the CHNA is the Evaluation of Impact report. At the end of the three-year period, we report on the impact we made to address the identified health needs in our region through the initiatives identified in Community Medical Centers' Implementation plan. This evaluation of impact helps guide our planning for the future. The most current Evaluation of Impact report outlines our efforts to address the health needs identified in the 2016 CHNA.

Community Benefit Report FY 2021

The Community Benefit Report is a state-mandated report due annually to the California Department of Health Care Access and Information (HCAI), formerly the Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD), which also demonstrates Community’s commitment to investing in the growing health needs in our region. Community has historically spent more on uncompensated community benefit than all other Fresno-area hospitals combined — in some years, nearly double the combined total of other area hospitals.
