Community Health Needs Assessment

We are proud to share with you our 2016 Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) report. The report reflects Kaiser Permanente’s long-standing commitment to working with other organizations to address the most urgent health needs in the communities we serve.

Conducting these assessments and making them available to the public is also important in meeting new federal requirements outlined in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. We invite you to view the Community Health Needs Assessments for each Kaiser Foundation Hospital.

Community Benefit Year-End Reports

At Kaiser Permanente, we believe in using the full range of our organization’s assets to improve the health of the communities we serve. We regularly gather data and seek input from our community partners and members to inform our investments and to guide the development of strategies that can make long-term, sustainable change and improve health. We are pleased to share our 2019 Community Benefit Year-End Report for Kaiser Foundation Hospitals in San Jose, which summarizes our efforts and highlight specific strategies and resources we deployed to respond to the prioritized health needs in those communities.
