Our Health Care Needs Assessment and Community Benefits Report

Casa Colina's mission is focused on providing direct services to individuals. We are aware that for some people, lack of insurance or other funding is a barrier to receiving services. In addition, the health and well-being of the community as a whole, and the strength of our sister organizations that create a care network, are critical factors for all of us.

As a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization, Casa Colina has a special responsibility to ensure that our services are available to all people who can benefit from them and that we do our part in providing for the health and wellness of the community in general, now and in the future.

In the Fiscal Year Ending (FYE) 2014, Casa Colina provided $962,209 of direct free care to persons who are uninsured or underinsured and/or low income, and unreimbursed MediCare/Medi-Cal services. It provided total community benefits valued at $3,982,796 in FYE 2014 which ranged from free sports injury screenings and health education for the public and for professionals, to the support of other community organizations and providing internship opportunities for the next generation of nurses, therapists and physicians.

These community benefits are prioritized based on the health care needs of people in our community. To know more about what these specific needs are, every three years Casa Colina conducts a Community Health Needs Assessment to learn more about the needs of the people we serve. The most recent Assessment was completed in March 2015 and is available to view here.

The Implementation Strategy describes how Casa Colina plans to address significant health needs identified in the 2015 Community Health Needs Assessment. For each significant health need that the hospital plans to address the strategy will include actions the hospital intends to take including programs and resources it plans to provide, anticipated impacts of these actions, and planned collaboration between the hospital and other organizations. To learn more about the implementation strategy to address the needs of the people we serve, the most recent report completed in August 2016 is available to view here.

Additionally, in order to stay on track with our efforts to provide benefits to the community to address these needs, Casa Colina does an annual review and publishes a Community Benefits Report. The Report for FYE 2016 is available to view here.
