Hospital survey to assess local health care needs
Boulder City Hospital is inviting area residents to participate in an online survey to assess community health needs.
As a nonprofit, the hospital is required by federal law to undertake a community health needs assessment every three years and develop a community health improvement plan based the results.
The purpose of this survey is to improve health care services in the community by asking questions about residents’ use of health services, community health care needs and the quality of health care in Boulder City, according to Tom Maher, CEO of the hospital.
The survey is being coordinated by the Office of Statewide Initiatives at the UNR School of Medicine and can be accessed at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/BCH-CHNA18. The survey will remain open until Sunday, Dec. 16, and should take about 10 minutes to complete.
Responses will be kept confidential and results are expected to be posted on the hospital website http://bchcares.org later this month.
For more information, contact Dr. John Packham at 775-784-1235 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or Rebecca Ricksecker at Boulder City Hospital at 702-293-4111 or email@example.com.
