Jasper County seeking public feedback on health needs
MercyOne Newton Medical Center and Jasper County Health Department will be working together in the coming months with community leaders and health care providers to update the 2022 Jasper County Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) previously done in 2019. These partners are seeking input from the public to understand the healthcare needs of Jasper County residents.
The goal of this assessment update is to understand progress in addressing health needs cited in the 2019 CHNA report and to collect up-to-date community health perceptions. VVV Consultants LLC, an independent health care consulting firm from Olathe, Kan., has been retained to conduct countywide research. A brief community survey has been developed in order to accomplish this work.
To access the link to participate in this survey, please visit MercyOne Newton Medical Center web site, Jasper County Public Health webitewebs r their social media sites. Responses are confidential, and the survey takes about 5 to 10 minutes to complete. https://bit.ly/35c1jHl
