CPH Conducting Community Survey Through June 22

first_imgRichards: “The Affordable Care Act, when it was passed in 2010, it required not-for-profit hospitals to conduct a community health needs assessment at least once every three years. Central Peninsula Hospital’s been doing it even before it was required, but this is the year that we are due to conduct a new survey, so that’s what the phone calls are about. We’ve made about 600 surveys by telephone so far.” FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Central Peninsula Hospital has been conducting a Community Health Needs Assessment via an online and phone survey. The survey can be found online at kenaihealth.org through June 22nd. Richards says the results will be delivered to CPH by June 30. Director of External Affairs Bruce Richards says a third party contractor has been conducting the phone interviews, with the total cost for the process running to about $50,000.center_img Richards: “So the purpose of the whole thing, obviously, is to identify community health needs. It’s used to determine: what’s the functional health status of the service area population? And provide information to the CPGH, Inc. board and the administration, so we can do strategic planning and prioritize our planning and focus here at the hospital.” The last time these surveys were completed was in 2013. At that time, respondents indicated a need for cancer treatment services and transitional housing. Richards says the hospital has made significant progress on both issues.last_img read more
