Community Needs Assessment

In 2016, War Memorial Hospital, in partnership with the Eastern Upper Peninsula Regional Planning and Development, contracted with the Western Upper Peninsula Health Department to provide a Community Health Needs Assessment for its primary service areas. The assessment was provided to meet the requirements of The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) for all not-for-profit 501(c) (3) hospitals.
