Shore Health, Chester River Launch Online Community Needs Survey

Shore Health and Chester River Health have just launched an online survey which will help to fulfill the CHNA (community health needs assessment) requirement, one of many that must be completed by our hospitals.

To access the survey, please click this link:

The 2013 Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) survey is easy to complete. It will assist in identifying and prioritizing community health concerns and issues of the residents in the Mid-Shore region. Please forward the link to family members, friends and neighbors or direct them to Shore Health’s website, which has the link to the survey on the homepage. The information collected will help to provide much needed outreach, screenings and wellness programs in the Mid-Shore region, keeping the people of the region as healthy as possible.

How Does It Work? The CHNA (Community Health Needs Assessment) survey is completely anonymous.

Why Participate? Shore Health and Chester River Health are conducting a study to identify the most urgent health issues in our region. The report will help us make decisions about the future of health care and disease prevention in the Mid-Shore region.

Who Should Participate? We encourage all individuals 18 years or older, living or working in the Mid-Shore, five-county area—Caroline, Dorchester, Kent, Queen Anne’s and Talbot—to complete the on-line survey. There are only 14 questions and it should take between 5 and 10 minutes to complete.

Shore Health and Chester River Health will post the complete study and results later this year on our websites. We value your time and your input. Thank you for your participation!
