The University of Kansas Health System Pawnee Valley Campus Seeks Public Input for 2021 Community Health Needs Assessment Update
LARNED, Kansas – Over the next three months, Pawnee Valley Campus will be working with other community providers to update the 2018 Pawnee County (KS) Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA). VVV Consultants LLC, an independent research firm from Olathe, Kansas has been retained again to conduct this countywide research.
ACA legislation requires all tax-exempt hospitals to submit a CHNA to the IRS every three years, regardless of hospital affiliation.
“While healthcare is front and center right now due to the coronavirus, we hope you find the time to help us learn how we are doing in providing healthcare in general to our community and what concerns or suggestions you have for us going forward,” comments Melanie Urban, Administrator. “We urge all Pawnee county residents to participate.”
Every three years, the hospital and health department complete an assessment, which begins with a review of local health data and collecting online community feedback.
The goal of this assessment update is to understand progress in addressing community health needs cited in the 2018 CHNA report and to collect up-to-date community health perceptions. To accomplish this work, a short online survey has been developed.
The survey can be accessed by going to https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CHNA2021_PawneeCo and the link will open by default. The link is also available on the Pawnee Valley Campus website in the News section and Facebook page.
All community residents are encouraged to complete the 2021 CHNA online survey by Friday, March 5, 2021.
If you have any questions about the CHNA survey, please call 785-623-2300.
