Community Health Needs Assessment

Date: 19-Nov-2017


Saint Joseph's Health Systems (SJHS) every 3 years performs a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) which assists in determining the needs and evaluating the overall health of the communities we serve.  While not all needs can be met, our Community Benefit Councils in Marshall and St. Joseph Counties, using the results from the CHNA, determine the top three or four areas to address via action plans.  The action plans are the tools we use to monitor effective responses to the needs.  The last needs assessment addressed access to healthcare services, transportation and mental health.  

We want to hear from you, your neighbors, your friends and family.  We need all voices to be heard!   SJHS needs your help to reach our goal of 10,000 surveys.  Anyone age 18 or over please take 10 minutes to complete the CHNA survey and invite everyone you know to do the same.  The survey can be found online at,and will be available from now until November 19th, 2017.  Survey participants will be entered in weekly drawings to win a FitBit Flex.
