Community Health Needs Assessment

To help determine what types of services and programs would most benefit the particular communities served, hospitals are required to carry out a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) and implementation strategies.

The 2018 Day Kimball Healthcare CHNA takes a broad look at the needs of individuals in our primary service area. Through October 2017 through September 2018, we have collected data through multiple resources and stakeholders. Data collection included:

  • Anonymous paper and electronic surveys to employees and DKH corporators focusing on access, quality, and services needed.
  • Interviews with more than 50 community leaders.
  • Day Kimball Healthcare Board of Directors.
  • Data review from multiple publicly reported resources.
This assessment not only focuses on the health of patients within the walls of DKH, it focuses on social determinants of health in our community. Day Kimball strives to impact on this more than ever. Overall, the assessment shows the continued need for DKH to deepen existing partnerships and develop new partnerships to achieve our mission: To improve the health and wellbeing

of our community by providing the best medical care. 

This assessment is broken down into several sections of identified needs including:

  • Social Determinants of Health
  • Employee Wellness
  • Day Kimball Healthcare at Home
  • Cancer Services
  • Opioid Epidemic
  • Diabetes
  • Stroke
  • Mental Health
