We believe that defining the community we serve in this way is supported by where our patients reside. The Ohio Department of Health requires each hospital that is registered in Ohio to file an Annual Hospital Registration and Planning Report by March 1 of each calendar year. A review of the patient origin data from the Annual Hospital Registration and Planning Reports for Doctors Hospital for 2011 supports the definition of the “community served” as being the residents of Franklin County, Ohio. For 2011, 86.20 percent of all hospital admissions reside in Franklin County at the time of admission.
Community input for this report was provided through a series of meetings with community representatives on the Franklin County Community Health Needs Assessment Steering Committee, led by the Central Ohio Hospital Council, during the 22 month project timeframe beginning in March of 2011. The members of the Steering Committee are listed in the HealthMap 2013 report. Individuals representing the broad interests of the community served by our Hospital participated on the Franklin County CHNA Steering Committee.
It was also important to us that individuals with special expertise in public health participate. Among those who participated as members of the Steering Committee were:
One of the most tangible measures of OhioHealth's value to our communities is the amount of "Community Benefit" we provide annually.
