You are invited to attend a very important Decatur County Community Forum to review basic community health needs assessment information and rank our community health priorities. Your input is valuable and will be incorporated into the final health needs report.
Decatur County Hospital, Decatur County Public Health, Community Health Centers of Southern Iowa, and CROSS Mental Health Region are partnering together to conduct a community health needs assessment. The goal is to gather input from people throughout our service area regarding their perceptions of the current state of our population’s health and what they believe are the most important health needs that our communities should address.
Data was collected through a Community Health Needs Assessment Survey from September 14th through October 31st. The survey was available online as well as in many businesses throughout the county.
