Public Encouraged to Complete Shelby County Health Needs Survey

Shelby County Public Health along with the Shelby County Board of Health, Board of Supervisors, Myrtue Medical Center and other community providers need your help in learning more about the specific health needs of Shelby County residents. This information will be used to develop plans for future health improvements to the community.

Myrtue Medical Center and Myrtue’s Public Health Department, in partnership with community organizations, schools and business representatives, use this feedback to prioritize plans to increase awareness, expand health and wellness services, increase access and engage the community.

The survey will close on April 24, 2023.

In the event that you do not have access to the internet or are having trouble with the online survey, paper surveys are available. If you need a paper survey, they are available from Public Health at 2712 12th St. or by calling 712.755.4422 to request a survey.

The progress report of the most recent Community Health Needs Assessment is also available at under “About Us”, then “Community Health Needs Assessment” and finally “2020-2023 Health Improvement Plan Progress Report”.

“The Community Health Assessment Survey is a method to receive input from the public to help identify key health needs and assets in a community, said Lori Hoch, Myrtue Medical Center’s Director-Public Health. “The best way to begin this assessment is to ask Shelby County residents to share their unique insight into the health of the community. Results from the survey will help identify health priorities that are most important to address gaps.”

Dates and times of meetings and locations for assistance with completing the survey will be provided in the newspaper and on KNOD radio station.

For questions, please call Lori Hoch at Myrtue Medical Center’s Public Health Department at 712.755.4423.
