For the first time, OSF St. Joseph Medical Center, Advocate BroMenn Medical Center, McLean County Health Department, and United Way of McLean County are joining together to conduct a Community Health Needs Assessment. This assessment, required by provisions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and IPLAN requirements, will provide information that will be used to assess and improve access and delivery of health care in McLean County, especially to those who are most vulnerable.
As part of the assessment process, these health care organizations are asking for survey participation from residents of McLean County. The survey takes less than 10 minutes to complete, and all responses are confidential. The survey will close on Wednesday, September 30, 2015.
Those who wish to participate in the survey can access it at:
Hard copies are also available at partnering organizations.
The results of the survey and Community Health Needs Assessment will be made publicly available. Based on the results, partnering organizations will collaborate on ways to improve the overall health of the community.
