Community Health Needs Assessment Now Underway
Oct 29, 2012
GILLETTE, WY – Campbell County Memorial Hospital is currently conducting a Community Health Needs Assessment in conjunction with stakeholders from many segments of the community. The assessment incorporates components of primary data collection and secondary data analysis that focuses on the health and social needs of the various community sectors.
The first meeting, held on October 17, identified community leaders in the sectors of Community-At-Large, Community/Institution, Healthcare, School, and Worksite. These leaders will collect and compile data from their specific sectors to identify priorities that will be used to develop the Community Action Plan and implementation of the identified community needs.
In addition to the work by the sector leaders, a survey has been developed to collect additional data from the community. The survey is available on the CCMH website, www.ccmh.net.
