NHCH seeks input on health needs


North Hawaii Community Hospital is collaborating with Healthcare Association of Hawaii and numerous hospitals and health care entities throughout the state to conduct a health needs assessment.

Community members are asked to participate in this assessment by sharing their health-related issues and concerns to help the Hawaii health care industry and NHCH better meet community needs.

“We encourage North Hawaii residents to participate in this assessment, so NHCH can gain a greater understanding of the health concerns within our community,” says William Brown, CEO.

“Your feedback will enable us to better coordinate limited resources to address top level health concerns and ensure we continue to meet the needs of our community,” said Brown.

The confidential assessment poses 10 questions related to health care concerns in your community and can be accessed online at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/Hawaii CommunitySurvey2012 or www.HAH.org.

The assessment takes less than five minutes to complete and must be done by Friday, Dec. 21. In addition to satisfying governmental regulations, the information collected will also be used for strategic planning purposes related to the delivery of health care throughout the state of Hawaii.

HAH is a nonprofit organization representing health care providers in Hawaii and is committed to advocating on behalf of the Hawaii health-care industries to ensure the delivery of quality and affordable health care to the people of Hawaii.

HAH, in coordination with Healthy Communities Institute (HCI), is conducting this community health needs assessment to gain input from community health workers, public health professionals and community members as part of a larger statewide community health needs assessment. Survey results will be available in March 2013.
