2022 Community Health Needs Assessment Survey

St. Margaret’s Health is involved in the 2022 Community Needs Assessment Survey. We’d appreciate your help in this important survey.

Every not-for-profit facility is to conduct a Community Health Needs Assessment every three years, due to new requirements. This is meant to put a plan together to meet the communities’ needs identified by key stakeholders-city officials, Social Services Agencies, and YOU!

Every community is unique, with its own health care needs, these include:

  • Obesity, Weight Loss & Diabetes Prevention
  • Substance Abuse
  • Chronic Illness

How do we use this information?

Once data is collected, the health needs are prioritized to focus on the communities’ greatest need. St. Margaret’s Health has administrators and caregivers who work together to support existing community-based health programs and services. New programs are also implemented to help each community meet its specific needs.

As St. Margaret’s Health moves forward this year, we want to focus on our efforts on issues and initiatives that our communities feel are important. Please help us in this goal.


We want to know how you view our community, so we are inviting you to participate in a research study for community health-needs. Your opinions are important. This questionnaire will take approximately 10 minutes to complete.

All of your individual responses are confidential. We will use results of the surveys to improve our understanding of health needs in the community.

Please read each question and mark the response that best represents your views of community needs.



Pertaining to COVID-19 Testing:

Due to critical shortages of supplies, St. Margaret’s Health is no longer testing walk-in patients for COVID-19; a physician’s order IS REQUIRED. If you have been exposed to COVID-19, please isolate at home, wear a mask and IF symptoms develop, contact your physician to request an order to be tested.

Having symptoms? In order to be tested for COVID-19, Influenza (Flu), Strep, RSV, or to receive a Respiratory Array test, patients MUST have a doctor’s order. Contact your medical care provider. Please DO NOT visit the testing center in Spring Valley without a physician’s order, OR visit an Emergency Department for testing.

There are many sites throughout the Illinois Valley that are still currently testing without physician’s orders, although appointments may be required.  Please refer to local pharmacies and health departments websites, or visit https://coronavirus.illinois.gov/testing-sites for more information.

Thank you!
