Needs Assessment of our service area


St. Elizabeth's also has a well-established tradition of partnering with other organizations to improve the health of the community. The primary service area for St. Elizabeth’s Hospital covers most of St. Clair County, pop. 270,046 (2010 Census). The secondary service area extends into Monroe, Clinton, Randolph and Madison Counties. Total population of the primary and secondary service area is 353,346 (2010 Census). St. Elizabeth’s Hospital also serves as a referral hospital the HSHS Southern Illinois Division which includes St. Joseph’s Hospital in Highland, St. Joseph’s Hospital in Breese and St. Anthony’s Memorial Hospital in Effingham.

The Affordable Care Act, enacted in 2010, requires hospital organizations to conduct a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) at least once every three taxable years, effective for taxable years beginning after March 23, 2012.

In 2012, we worked closely with the St. Clair County Healthy Department participating in the development of the County's IPLAN (Illinois Project for Local Assessment of Needs). The IPLAN is a community health assessment and planning process that is conducted by the local health jurisdictions in Illinois. It is used by St. Elizabeth's to determine the hospital's community benefit improvement strategies.

St. Elizabeth's Hospital works with numerous community groups outside our walls to share important health information, provide screenings or present on a specific health-related topic.
