Hospitals to survey local residents

Local residents may be asked to take a survey meant to assess their healthcare needs.

Hospital systems throughout Indiana are working together to assess the health needs of their communities by asking Hoosiers to take a survey.

Community Health Network, Community Healthcare System, Deaconess Health System, Franciscan Health, Gibson General Hospital, Hendricks Regional Health, Indiana University Health, Methodist Hospitals, North Central Health Services, Riverview Health, and St. Vincent, in collaboration with The University of Evansville are included in a statewide collaboration which will begin targeting communities in 39 counties to find out what residents think are the most important issues that impact their health and well-being.

Throughout the month of April, My Community Health Needs Assessment surveys will be mailed to more than 80,000 randomly selected Indiana addresses. The survey, which takes 10 to 15 minutes to complete, includes a range of questions about health care access, perception of social services and what health issues are in need of improvement.
