Health Needs Assessment


To best serve our community, HSHS St. Joseph's Hospital conducts a Community Health Needs Assessment every 3 years. Surveys and interviews of local residents are conducted to gather information for the needs assessment. Additional information from the Madison County Health Department as well as local, state and national data is integrated into the needs assessment report.

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