2019 Community Needs Assessment Survey

Input

St. Margaret’s Health is involved in the 2019 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.
