Community-wide townhall to discuss local needs


March 5, 2019

MercyOne Newton Medical Center (formerly known as Skiff Medical Center) and the Jasper County Health Department have partnered together to prepare a 2019 Jasper County (IA) Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA). The goal of this project is to understand progress in addressing community health needs and to collect up-to-date community health perceptions. In addition, ACA legislation requires all tax-exempt hospitals to submit a CHNA to the IRS every three years. Vince Vandehaar, MBA, with VVV Consultants LLC, has been retained to conduct this community-wide research.

A community-wide Jasper County CHNA townhall working lunch meeting will be held Tuesday, March 19 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in room 210 at the Newton DMACC Conference Center, 600 N. 2nd Ave. W. in Newton, Iowa. At this meeting, initial online survey results will be discussed and priorities established.

If you are interested in attending and sharing your community insight, please RSVP online at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/JasperCo_RSVP

MercyOne Newton and Public Health wish to extend their appreciation to everyone participating in this important community feedback assessment. If you have any questions regarding CHNA activities, please e-mail MercyOne Newton Medical Center at pr@skiffmed.com.
