LARNED, Kan. (February 16, 2015) Pawnee Valley Community Hospital in conjunction with the Pawnee County Health Department to update the 2012 community health needs assessment. Results of this update will be compiled and prioritized to help guide the hospital’s implementation plans to address health care needs and fulfill both federal and state requirements.

To accomplish this work, a short online survey has been developed: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/Pawnee15 . If you would like to participate in the survey and do not have access to a computer, copies of the paper survey are available for pick up at Pawnee Valley Community Hospital information desk, Pawnee County Health Department, The Welcome Inn, Jordaan Memorial Library, Pawnee Valley Medical Associates, and Garfield, Burdett and Rozel City Offices.
All Pawnee County community residents and business leaders are encouraged to complete the 2015 online CHNA survey by Tuesday, February 24, 2015 for the upcoming Town Hall Meeting. Included in the 2015 CHNA survey are questions dealing with community health regarding service delivery, fitness, nutrition and access to care. All survey responses are anonymous and completing the survey takes less than 10 minutes.
“We hope that the community and health professionals will take advantage of this opportunity to provide input into the future of healthcare delivery in our county,” commented John Hughes, PVCH Administrator.
