Ohio Revised Code §3701.891, effective September 28, 2016, imposes additional CHNA requirements and deadlines for Ohio’s tax-exempt hospitals. This section requires Ohio tax-exempt hospitals to coordinate CHNA efforts with local health departments and submit CHNAs, Implementation Strategies and Schedule H of IRS form 990 to the Ohio Department of Health for placement on a public website. Make sure that you’re ready to meet the first deadline of July 1, 2017.

Over the next several days, we will issue several publications reviewing the new requirements and will provide you with tips, pointers and best practices that you can use to comply with Ohio’s new CHNA requirements.
