Community Health Needs Assessment
As a community hospital, our goal is to care for you when you have an illness
or injury, and to help you and your family members live healthy lives.
In 2016, we completed a community needs assessment to help us determine
the greatest health needs in our communities so we can find ways to help.
There are many things that influence community health, and it takes a variety
of organizations and individuals to address them. We reached out to many
of those in our communities to help us complete our assessment. We also
performed public surveys to get feedback from those who reside in our
communities. In addition, we reviewed data from county, state and federal
sources to help us understand the scope of the health challenges that
face our communities.
From the health needs assessment we determined there are six areas where
we can make the greatest impact. These include:
- Cardiovascular disease
- Chronic Lower Respiratory Disease
- Substance Abuse
With these priorities in place, we will use what we have learned to develop
programs and to work closely with other organizations to apply a team
focus on meeting these health needs in our communities.
