2015 Community Health Needs Assessment
In the summer of 2015, St. Peter’s Hospital retained Professional Research Consultants, Inc., of Omaha, Nebraska, to complete a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA). This CHNA included a random-sample telephone survey of community residents on their health conditions, behaviors, preferences; it also included an online “key informant” survey targeted to individuals with a broad interest in the health of the community. St. Peter’s partnered with the Lewis & Clark Public Health to plan and develop the survey instruments.
St. Peter's and Lewis and Clark Public Health summarized key findings from this research and other public health data to produce a joint 2015 Community Health Report. The Community Health Report provides a snapshot of the key health issues facing our community. The Community Health Needs Assessment serves as an expansive reference for those interested in exploring data behind some of those findings in more depth.
