YRMC health needs assessment
Yavapai Regional Medical Center (YRMC) has published its 2013 Community Health Needs Assessment. The assessment - conducted every three years - is a comprehensive look at the health needs of Yavapai County residents with a focus on western Yavapai County.
"As the area's leading not-for-profit healthcare provider, YRMC goes to great lengths to stay connected to the community," said Robbie Nicol, YRMC's Executive Director of Community Outreach and Philanthropy. "The Community Health Needs Assessment provides information that allows YRMC to take that connection to an even deeper level. It ensures our services, programs and partnerships benefit the people we serve."
The report highlights the challenges that can affect overall community health. It also reveals the need for effective partnerships between YRMC and other local not-for-profit organizations to address those challenges.
The Community Health Needs Assessment was developed using data from county and national sources as well as surveys and interviews with key local organizations.
"This report is an opportunity for the entire community to focus on ways to improve the health of western Yavapai County residents," Nicol said. "YRMC is proud to lead this effort by sharing this valuable information."
The Community Health Needs Assessment covers Yavapai County with a focus on western Yavapai County, including the Quad-Cities area of Chino Valley, Dewey/Humboldt, Prescott and Prescott Valley.
Also included in the assessment are the communities of Bagdad, Mayer, Paulden and Skull Valley.
The 2013 Community Health Needs Assessment is available for download free of charge via YRMC's website located at www.yrmc.org.
