As a non-profit organization, we consider every service we provide at CHKD to be a benefit to the community. Specifically, community benefit refers to programs or activities that provide treatment or promote health and healing in response to identified community needs.
CHKD needs YOUR help in improving health in our community!
We are in the process of conducting a Community Health survey in order to better understand health needs and priorities within the communities that we serve. Please take a few minutes to complete the survey online. Your feedback will help us in prioritizing our health-related goals, programs, and services. Thank you in advance for your participation!
Measuring and Meeting the Needs of our Children
Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters is committed to meeting the health needs in the communities we serve. Every three years we conduct a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) to better understand the broad community health and healthcare needs of our community. The findings inform our decision-making, our
programs, and our services. They also help to ensure that we are utilizing our resources and leveraging community partnerships in the most effective way.
Based on the findings from the CHNA, we develop an Implementation Plan to guide our work. Your feedback is important in refining this plan as we move forward. Please email any thoughts and suggestions to
Community Benefit Reports
Our Community Benefit
At CHKD, working to improve the lives of our community's children is a twofold endeavor, deeply ingrained in our mission, our history, and our daily work.
On one hand, we are the regional referral center for pediatrics, trusted by parents and fellow providers alike to offer the most advanced pediatric technology, training, and care. On the other, we are the safety net provider for the children of our region, assuming the financial responsibility of caring for all children, knowing that we will never be fully reimbursed for many of the services we provide.
In this section of our website, we give you a closer look at some of the ways CHKD benefits our community and improves the quality of life in our region by assessing pediatric healthcare needs, caring for children, supporting parents, collaborating with others and educating pediatric caregivers.
The programs and activities described here also meet at least one of the following goals: improving access to care, enhancing public health, advancing knowledge or relieving government burden.
