Dear Editor,
We are happy to announce that Clara Barton Hospital and Ellinwood District Hospital are collaborating with each other in this year’s community health needs assessment to ensure that the healthcare needs of Barton County continue to be met.
We highly encourage the members of our community to participate in our health needs survey (https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/Barton2015). This research will be used by Ellinwood District Hospital and Clara Barton Hospital to develop and implement strategies that will continue to meet the healthcare needs of Barton County.
Community members are also invited to a community meeting, March 19, 5:30-7pm, at the Immaculate Conception Parish Hall, in Claflin. The survey results will be presented at this time, allowing citizens in attendance an opportunity to provide feedback.
Your input is valuable beyond measure, and we look forward to seeing you in March!
Yours in Health,
Jim Blackwell (Hoisington) and Penny Stephenson (Ellinwood)
