Community assessments and plans

Assessing health needs is an important part of the mission of hospitals and county health departments. All partners involved in this community health needs assessment process agree their organizations share a common vision of improving community health and yet may prioritize needs and address them differently in subsequent action plans for their organizations.

Community Health Needs Assessment

Every three years, Gundersen Boscobel Area Hospital and Clinics collaborates with regional health care providers and agencies to conduct a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA).

The Assessment helps identify needs, or gaps which exist, in a variety of areas ranging from quality of life, education, socio-economic, as well as health and wellness. Upon completion, needs are prioritized, and strategies are developed to address those prioritized areas.

Community Health Needs Assessment

Through focus groups, we have learned more about the health needs of northeast Iowa. The process, called a Community Health Needs Assessment, is designed to gather information on unmet health needs in the area and identify ways we can help meet those needs.

Our Community Health Needs Assessment identified three priority categories of concern:

  • Access to Health Care
  • Healthy Behaviors and Lifestyles (focus on Obesity)
  • Adult & Child Risky Behavior Education (Alcohol and Drug Abuse)

Activities to address identified community health needs (above) are outlined in a report called a Health Improvement Plan. These activities will occur during a three-year period (2020-2022).
