Core Measures

This report presents the results of a community health needs assessment commissioned by Central Peninsula Hospital, located in Soldotna, Alaska, to update a previous assessment conducted in 2009/2010. The University of New England's Center for Health Policy, Planning and Research, formerly Public Health Resource Group, was contracted in both years to conduct a survey of local residents and to review existing health risks and chronic disease prevalence data for comparison regions to determine the health status of Central Kenai Peninsula (CKP), Alaska. The goals of the current assessment were to:

  • Complete a Community Health Needs Assessment by June 2013 to comply with IRS reporting requirements mandated in the PPACA;
    • To take into account input from persons who represent the broad interests of the community served by the hospital facility, including those with special knowledge of or expertise in public health;
    • Make certain that it "be made widely available to the public";
  • Evaluate community perceptions of the need for various health services and of Central Peninsula Hospital's services and facilities;
  • Inform strategic planning and provide recommendations for service delivery based on health status findings and physician workforce analysis.
