AGH Completes Community Health Needs Assessment

7/18/2013

Allegan General Hospital has completed their first Community Health Needs assessment and the results are now available. Undertaken in part to make sure we meet new IRS requirements for maintaining our tax exempt status, this project has also helped us to better understand the people that we serve – how healthy is our population, and how well are your health needs being met?

Based on our data findings, plus results from a community survey and input from community leaders, the hospital has identified Accessibility & affordability for low income residents; Primary care; and Women’s health services as significant areas of unmet health needs in our region.

AGH leaders are committed to helping to address the issues that have been identified. During this process we learned that other groups and organizations in our area are also concerned about these issues and want to work with us to find effective and sustainable solutions. By pooling our ideas and resources, we believe that we can make real progress that has a positive impact on the people who live in our region.

We are in the early stages of working with our community partners to develop action plans going forward.
