Health Needs Assessment


To best serve our community, HSHS St. Joseph's Hospital conducted a Community Health Needs Assessment during late 2011 and early 2012. More than 200 telephone interviews of local residents were conducted to gather information for the needs assessment. Additional information from the Madison County Health Department as well as local, state and national data was integrated into the needs assessment report.

The purpose of the assessment was to identify key areas of health care needs in our community and to prioritize those needs. St. Joseph's Hospital is using the information to help identify available resources and to plan future efforts to improve the health status of persons living in the Highland and surrounding areas.
