Northwest Medical Center is conducting a Community Health Needs Assessment and we need your help. The objective of this assessment is a systematic, data-driven approach to determining the health status, behaviors and needs of the residents in the service area of your hospital. The information gathered in this survey will be used to inform decisions and guide efforts to improve community health and wellness. By participating in the survey, you can help us serve you better by identifying the needs that are important to you.
