Broward Health is committed to improving the health and well-being of the diverse communities it serves in South Florida. It offers a wide range of medical services, including preventative care, acute care, and specialty services, to ensure that patients receive the highest quality care possible. Broward Health also collaborates with local community organizations to address social determinants of health and promote health equity.
Broward Health provides more than $354 million annually in total benefit to the community through care for the uninsured, charity care, Medicaid subsidies, and other programming.
Broward Health sponsors events and activities that support our hospitals, programs, priorities, and mission as a public health system. Each request is carefully reviewed once the organization has successfully completed a VRS profile and our compliance department has approved it. For an organization to be considered for sponsorship, the organization must be a 501(c) nonprofit or a government nonprofit entity and provide services in Broward County. Sponsorship requests can take up to 120 days to be considered. If Broward Health approves your request, our community affairs team will notify the organization via email.

Community Health Needs Assessment
A community health needs assessment (CHNA) is a systematic process for evaluating the health and well-being of a specific population and identifying the priority health issues and needs within that community. The assessment involves a variety of data sources, including surveys, public health data, and input from community stakeholders. The information gathered through a community health needs assessment is used to guide the development of programs, policies, and initiatives aimed at improving health outcomes and addressing the health needs of the community. Not-for-profit hospital organizations are required by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) to conduct a CHNA once every three years.
As a part of IRS regulations, hospital organizations are required to conduct a community health needs assessment, which serves as a guiding document for strategic planning. By utilizing the process of developing a community health needs assessment, North Broward Hospital District, d/b/a Broward Health, has positioned itself to address local health needs that are not being met.
