Community Health Needs Assessment
Through community surveys and listening sessions, we have learned more about the health needs of northeast Iowa and southeast Minnesota. The process, called a Community Health Needs Assessment, is designed to gather information on unmet health needs in the area and identify ways we can help meet those needs.
Our 2016 Community Health Needs Assessment identified four priority categories of concern:
- Mental Health/Behavior Health
- Healthy Behaviors
- Active Living
- Prevention and Management of Diseases
Twenty-eight (28) activities to address identified community health needs (above) are outlined in a report called a Health Improvement Plan. These activities will occur over a 3-year period.
