Community Health Needs Assessment / Community Health Improvement Plan

As part of the requirements for a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), every FQHC is required to conduct a Community Health Needs Assessment at least every third year with the goal of tailoring programming to meet the community needs when possible. 

In McLean County, Chestnut Health Systems has joined an existing collaboration with three other organizations: OSF St. Joseph Medical Center, Advocate BroMenn Medical Center and the McLean County Health Department to assist in the 2019 Community Health Needs Assessment process and develop a comprehensive plan for addressing the identified health needs of the McLean County community for 2020-22. 

Below are links to McLean County’s current Community Health Needs Assessment and Community Health Improvement Plan.

Chestnut Family Health Center continues to care for patients during the COVID-19 outbreak. To comply with social distancing recommendations, we are offering some appointments by telephone or video. Our in-house Genoa Pharmacy is offering curbside pick-up and mail order delivery. For patients who are seen in the office, we are doing extra cleaning and have a number of precautions in place to protect your health and ours. During the outbreak, we are following these guidelines:

  • If you have a fever, cough, difficulty breathing or have been near someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, please do not come to our office even if you have an appointment. Please call our office for an over-the-phone evaluation by our staff.
  • If you have concerns about coming to our office for a scheduled appointment, please call our office at least one day before your appointment to talk with staff.
