Supporting Our Community
Community Health Needs Assessment
The hospital of tomorrow will not just serve patients when they are sick or injured. At St. Mary’s Good Samaritan, our hospitals will be the trusted resource where residents of Southern Illinois turn when they need preventive care, wellness advice, educational programs, and resources for social issues concerning our communities.
Key priorities emerged for both Good Samaritan Regional Health Center and St. Mary’s Hospital’s action plans and resource allocation for short- and long-term community health strategies. The top priorities identified are:
- Access to Care
- Mental Health / Substance Abuse
- Heart Disease
- Cancer (exclusive to Good Samaritan)
A brief, 2 page, summary report for each hospital is included along with the full Community Health Need Assessment reports.
