Providers Seeking Public Feedback on Health Needs
Over the next few months, William Newton Hospital will be partnering with the City-Cowley County Health Department and Community Health Center in Cowley County to update the Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA).
These partners are seeking input from the public to understand the healthcare needs of Cowley County residents.
“Over the last 18 months you have heard from us numerous times regarding the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. I am now asking you to communicate back to the local healthcare community by taking a survey that will allow us to assess our progress and areas we must improve,” requests Thomas Langer, City-Cowley County Health Department Administrator & Public Health Officer.
The goal of this assessment update is to understand progress in addressing health needs cited in the 2015 and 2018 CHNA reports and to collect up-to-date community health perceptions. VVV Consultants LLC, an independent healthcare consulting firm from Olathe, KS, has been retained to conduct countywide research. A brief community survey has been developed in order to accomplish this work.
The survey can be accessed by visiting partner websites and social media pages, or directly by clicking this survey link.
Responses are confidential, and the survey takes about five to 10 minutes to complete.
All community residents and business leaders are encouraged to complete the 2021 CHNA online survey by Thursday, July 15. In addition, please save the date for a Town Hall meeting scheduled Tuesday, August 31 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. If you have any questions regarding CHNA activities or would like to participate in the Town Hall, please contact William Newton Hospital Director of Marketing and Business Development Sarah Johnson at 620.222.6262.
The hospital, health department, and community health center thank you in advance for your time and support.
