Stormont Vail Health and the Shawnee County Health Department are requesting the input of the Shawnee County community. Improving the health of the community is the number one priority for health professionals in Shawnee County. To better address the needs of the community, Stormont Vail and the Shawnee County Health Department are collaborating to perform a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) for the residents of Shawnee County, with the goal to understand the scope of wellness in the community and the challenges in reaching optimal health.
Public input is important to understand the needs of the community. The public is invited to provide feedback through a survey and town hall meetings.
The survey, available in both English and Spanish, asks questions about health needs for individuals, families and the community. The survey should take approximately 10 minutes to complete and all responses are confidential.
The survey will close on February 28, 2021. The feedback received will be combined with data to create a comprehensive voice of the community at a Shawnee County town hall held in April.
