St. Elizabeth Community Health Needs Assessment Survey


The intent of the Community Health Needs Assessment is to use information gathered to plan for community healthcare that is responsive to the residents’ needs.

The criteria by which St. Elizabeth Hospital (STEH) prioritized identified needs were: feedback from key community stakeholder surveys and interviews, examination of research data, the number of persons affected, the seriousness of the issue, hether the health needs particularly affected persons living in poverty or reflected health disparities, and whether or other community resources are available to address the need. Members of the STEH Senior Leadership Team met to discuss the ranking strategy. Discussion of the prioritization and implementation strategy was shared with other key stakeholders in the community for their input.

Thank you for participating in the St. Elizabeth Hospital’s Community Health Needs Assessment for 2018. The most critical components of the assessment are the voices of the communities we serve and we hope you offered your opinions, insights, and perspective as we work to address the most pressing healthcare needs in our community. Thank you for letting your voice be heard by completing this quick, anonymous survey. The survey is now closed.  We greatly appreciate your time and participation.
