I work in Government and Community Relations at Baystate Health in Springfield, MA. A colleague and I are doing best practice research regarding community benefits oversight/governance, specifically at the hospital board level. I would like to invite you to take a few minutes of your time and answer some questions below regarding your hospitals oversight of community benefits.
1. Does your state require hospitals to report annually on community benefits?
a. If yes, who oversees community benefits in your state? (Attorney General, Department of Public Health, etc.)
b. If yes, does your state require hospitals to have a board approved community benefits plan based on a community needs assessment?
2. Does your hospitals board have oversight over community benefits?
a. If yes, does the board have a community benefits committee?
b. Are members of the community benefits committee required to be members of the board of trustees or are other community members allowed to participate on the committee?
c. What is the membership size of the board community benefits committee?
3. If your hospital is part of a system, does each hospital entity have its own community benefits advisory committee (made up of internal and external stakeholders)?
Please feel free to share additional information about oversight and governance of your hospitals community benefits. Also, if available, we would appreciate seeing a community benefits organization chart or description on the management and reporting structure for community benefits at your hospital.October 20, 2010 at 6:07 pm #6701

No Delaware does not require a cb report
No our Board does not have oversight
We do not do our cb reporting separately …it’s one for all
