The five hospitals of Piedmont Healthcare belong to the communities we serve. Our mission is healthcare marked by compassion and sustainable excellence in a progressive environment, guided by physicians, delivered by exceptional professionals and inspired by the communities we serve. This mission is evidenced within our community benefit programs. Piedmont doesn't want to just make people healthier; we want to keep people healthy.
As a nonprofit hospital, Piedmont Atlanta belongs to its community, and has since its founding as a ten-bed sanatorium located in downtown Atlanta in 1905. The hospital has grown over the years, and is now a 488-bed full-service tertiary facility serving the region. We continue to stay committed to our community, and that commitment is demonstrated through our community benefit programs. Through those programs, we work to address the unmet health needs of our vulnerable populations.
To better understand those needs, in 2013, Piedmont Atlanta conducted a community health needs assessment (CHNA), which is both the both the activity and product of identifying and prioritizing a community's health needs. We did this by talking to community stakeholders, analyzing relevant public health and hospital data, and seeing where we could make the most impact in our neighborhoods and city.

In 2014, we began work on the first year of our three-year plan. Click here for an update on our progress, including an in-depth look at our top health priorities and the key activities and actions taken to create a stronger and healthier community.
Because we are a nonprofit hospital, we are required by law to provide file annually IRS Form 990, in which we report out our community benefit activities within a part of that form titled Schedule H. Click here to access our last filed form.
