Community Health Needs Assessment

Based on the findings from the 2012 CHNA, CCMH has continuously been working on community health engagement. In April 2014, Jenny Butterfield began working on a community health and wellness project. Jenny was responsible for gathering and authoring the 2015 Carroll County CHNA. Jenny obtained her Bachelor of Health Science degree and Masters of Public Health degree from the University of Missouri-Columbia. Jenny is currently finishing her Doctorate of Public Health degree from Loma Linda University and is expected to graduate in June 2016. Carroll County Memorial Hospital employees Jeanne Rector and Cindy Gilman also contributed and assisted with the 2015 Carroll County CHNA.

Two community stakeholder meetings were conducted at CCMH during August and October 2014 to assess public perceptions of the county’s health status and unmet needs. The stakeholders included those knowledgeable about the community, influential leaders, and health care providers/services. One-on-one meetings were also conducted with key stakeholders such as the administrator of the Carroll County Health Department.

The report followed the 2015 Guidance for Completing A Community Health Needs Assessment published by the Missouri Hospital Association [MHA] in addition to the most recent laws and regulations requirements for tax-exempt hospitals.
