Community Health Needs Assessment
Not only is Burnett Medical Center receptive to our patients' needs inside our facility, but we are outside in the community as well.

In partnership with the Burnett County Department of Health and Human 十大最好的网赌平台-Public Health we have conducted routine Community Health Needs Assessments since 2013. 的 goal of a Community Health Needs Assessment is to identify the most significant health needs among Burnett County residents. As a result, we develop an action plan to address the identified health needs. 这是 Burnett Medical Center’s 2022, 2019, 2016, 2013 Community Health Needs Assessments.

Rather than just simply meeting a requirement, Burnett Medical Center’s partnership with the Burnett County Department of Health and Human 十大最好的网赌平台-Public Health created an infrastructure for continual health improvement.
This infrastructure is known as the 健康伯内特 Coalition, which was formed in 2013 as a result of the Community Health Needs Assessment. 健康伯内特 is led by Burnett Medical Center and the Burnett County Department of Health and Human 十大最好的网赌平台-Public Health. This coalition brings together key community stakeholders to align activities and resources to enhance how the community addresses the identified health needs.
