As part of Central Iowa Healthcare’s commitment to creating a healthier community, it is launching a community survey to identify community health needs and priorities. Those that live, work and seek healthcare in CIH’s service area can participate in this assessment via the following survey link:
Paper copies of the survey are also available at Central Iowa Healthcare’s clinics in Conrad, Marshalltown, State Center and Tama, as well as Urgent Care and the Emergency Room at the hospital.
The survey is part of an overall comprehensive Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA). All residents are encouraged to complete the survey by October 7, 2016. The survey should take no longer than 10 minutes to complete. In addition to the community survey, the CHNA process will include a review of health status indicators, individual interview with key informants in the community, prioritizing of community needs and an action plan to address these needs.
The public is also invited to a Community Input meeting to be held on Monday, October 10, 2016, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in Conference Rooms B and C in the lower level of the hospital located at 3 S. 4th Ave. Marshalltown, IA.
“This is an important time for Central Iowa Healthcare to receive feedback from community members on how we can best serve them,” said Dawnett Willis, Central Iowa Healthcare COO/Acting CEO. “The information gathered in this survey will enable Central Iowa Healthcare, as well as other stakeholders in the community to meet and better serve the healthcare needs of the people who live and work here.”
