Community Health Needs Assessment

Community Health Needs Assessment
St. Luke's University Hospital - Bethlehem

The St. Luke's University Hospital has conducted a community health needs assessment (CHNA) pursuant to the requirement of Section 501 (r) of the Internal Revenue Code. 

St. Luke's University Hospital commissioned the Lehigh Valley Research Consortium (LVRC) to conduct a CHNA for the Bethlehem campus during calendar years 2011 and 2012. The needs assessment included two separate data collection strategies:

1. A random survey of Lehigh Valley and portions of Bucks and Montgomery County households
2. An analysis of existing community health measures and secondary data

These reports are included here for use by professionals and community members interested in learning more about the health status of our local community.
