The Community Health Needs Assessment provides a roadmap to help communities reach their destination of a healthier place to call home. LeConte Medical Center is hopeful that this assessment will be a catalyst for meaningful collaboration and action as we address some of the most important health improvement opportunities facing Sevier County.
The Affordable Care Act requires not-for-profit hospitals to conduct a needs assessment every three years and to create an Implementation Plan to address the significant findings. This effort will assist us in “connecting the dots” between LeConte’s resources and the needs of the community, identifying additional resources, and engaging with community partners in initiatives that benefit the residents of Sevier County.
