Thursday is final day to provide local input through Community Health Needs Assessment Survey

Input is still needed for the community health needs assessment survey. This is required every three years of Veterans Memorial Hospital (VMH) to survey the residents of Allamakee County and the surrounding areas served by the hospital. The hospital is still conducting that survey through this Thursday, June 30 and more input is needed from all the area communities.

The intent is to collect a list of the health needs the residents feel are most important. Community Health Needs Assessments gather information to help guide and direct health planning activities.

Information from this survey is compiled and used to update and improve the health plan for this entire service area of the hospital.   The hospital encourages everyone to take a few minutes to complete this important survey so the results can be used to develop a plan to address the outlined health needs.

The survey can be accessed through the QR code above, or on the home page of the Veterans Memorial Hospital website at
