Community Health Needs Assessment To Be Conducted

A Community Health Needs Assessment is being conducted by the Pratt Health Coalition in partnership with the Pratt County Health Department and Pratt Regional Medical Center. To participate in the Community Health Needs Assessment, Pratt County residents may take a short survey by going online to: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/prattcountychna. A link to the survey is also available on the Pratt Regional Medical Center website, www.prmc.org. Paper copies of the survey are available at Pratt Regional Medical Center or the Pratt County Health Department.

Feedback from the survey will help health care providers and community leaders identify and prioritize current health issues in the Pratt community. Participation is voluntary and confidential. The survey contains 10 questions and should only take a few minutes to complete. The survey will be available until June 1, 2015.

Three years ago a Community Health Needs Assessment was completed for Pratt County. This assessment identified a number of health needs in our community. As a result of the last Community Health Needs Assessment (completed in 2012) priority was given to these identified issues:

1. Obesity/Healthy Lifestyles
2. Community Building/Economic Development
3. Positive Decision Making for Adolescents and Teens
4. Access to Healthcare

For the past several years, the Pratt Health Coalition has been working together to create a more healthy environment for Pratt County. The coalition has worked with city officials to create designated bike paths and additional sidewalks. They have worked with area businesses to create healthier work environments by encouraging employees to be active and eat healthy foods.

Another local coalition, the Pratt County SWAT (Solutions With Actions Together) Team has been meeting regularly for the past three years to build a foundation for a sustainable coalition that will work to help youth in the Pratt community make positive decisions and avoid using drugs and alcohol.

Local healthcare providers continue to care for those who are uninsured through the Agape Health Clinic. The free clinic is open on the first Saturday of every month. Local doctors, mid-levels, nurses and volunteers work together to provide this service for the Pratt community.

Many people in the Pratt community work together to help improve the quality of life and take care those who live here. If you are interested in joining a local coalition or have questions about the Community Health Needs Assessment, please contact Kim Stivers, PRMC Community Services Director at (620) 450-1444 or at kstivers@prmc.org.
