HaysMed Conducts Community Health Needs Assessment
Hays, Kansas (Feb 4, 2015) – HaysMed is working with other Ellis County Kansas health providers to update the 2012 community health needs assessment. Results of this update will be compiled and prioritized to help guide the hospital’s implementation plans to address health care needs and fulfill both federal and state requirements.
Starting the week of February 2nd, surveys will be mailed to 2800 randomly selected Ellis county residents with a deadline of Friday Feb 27th. (Note: If you would like to participate and do not receive a mailed survey, please go to https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/Hays15CHNA to complete the survey online.) Copies of the paper survey will also be available for pickup after February 10 at HaysMed at the Information Desks in the Miller Medical Pavilion Entrance B, Main Entrance C and at The Center for Health Improvement.
All Ellis County KS residents and business leaders are encouraged to participate. Included in the 2015 CHNA surveys are questions dealing with community health regarding service delivery, fitness, nutrition, and access to care. All survey responses are anonymous and completing the survey takes less than 10 minutes. VVV Research & Development LLC, an independent research firm from Olathe, Kansas has been retained to conduct this countywide research.
