The Center for Healtcare Analytics is located within the School of Public, Nonprofit and Health Administration at Grand Valley State University. With a particular emphasis on nonprofit health, the Center was created to perform local and regional needs assessment and program evaluation services for improved accountability and strategic decision marking among small/rural hospitals and health systems. As such, the Center focuses primarily on applied, policy-relevant research and evaluation services geared for rural clients typically lacking the means or expertise to conduct such work in-house. We provide the following services:

  • Needs Assessment
  • Community Benefit Reporting
  • Program Evaluation
  • Mapping Services
  • Data Driven Decision-Making
  • Strategic Planning
  • Survey Research
  • Policy Analysis
