Allegheny Health Network

The Partnership

Allegheny Health Network (AHN) is an integrated health care system that serves patients from across a four-state region that includes Pennsylvania and portions of New York, Ohio, and West Virginia. AHN has 14 hospitals and more than 200 primary- and specialty-care practices.

AHN provides world-class medicine to patients in their communities, across the country, and around the world.

The Action

AHN retained Tripp Umbach in 2021 to provide a community needs health assessment for their health care system and individual hospitals. Input from the community was sought through a customized multi-language community survey, stakeholder interviews, and a provider survey. In total, 59 community stakeholder interviews were conducted and feedback from 2,201 online surveys was collected from AHN providers along with 866 surveys from the community.

Community input was aligned with secondary data and presented to the CHNA Steering Committee as a framework for assessing current community needs, identifying new/emerging health issues, and advancing health improvement efforts to address identified needs.

The Outcome

The CHNA results illustrated the continued need for focuses on Social Determinants of Health, Behavioral Health, Chronic Disease, and Health Equity.

The CHNA determined the health status of the community with direct initiatives and planning strategies. Without a doubt, the CHNA connected new partners and solidified relationships with local and regional agencies with the overall goal to improve the health outcomes of residents in the region.

Allegheny Health Network is committed to leveraging their collective strengths and resources to best address the communities’ health needs and provide exceptional care so people can live their healthiest life.
