Over the next three months, Shenandoah Medical Center and Clarinda Regional Health Center will be collaborating to complete a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) in its service area.

The goal of this assessment is to understand progress in addressing community health needs and to collect up-to-date community health perceptions. This information helps drive future activities for our facilities as we continue to address our goal of making the residents of Southwest Iowa healthier by offering essential services to the communities that we serve.

To compose the Community Health Needs Assessment, a short online survey has been developed and can be accessed by visiting the following website:

They ask that you please complete this survey by Friday, Jan. 4, 2019.

A Town Hall will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 13, with key healthcare and community stakeholders to discuss findings and begin the initial stages of the preparation of an implementation plan. This Town Hall will be in the Delmonico Room of the Greater Shenandoah Historical Society Museum at 800 W. Sheridan Ave. in Shenandoah. All interested persons are invited to attend.
