Community Health Needs Assessment


Community Hospital-Fairfax (CH-F) is proud to present the Community Health Needs Assessment for Atchison and Holt County. The report is available at the link to the left. If you would like a hard copy, call (660) 686-2317.

The needs assessment is the product of research, focus groups and a community wide survey conducted from January to June 2016. The goal of the assessment was to determine what the greatest health needs were in the community and how Community Hospital-Fairfax can best meet those needs.

This is the second Community Health Needs Assessment conducted by Community Hospital-Fairfax. The first assessment was released in 2013. 

The 2016 assessment has indicated that the greatest health needs in Atchison and Holt County population are for more mental health services, primary care access, ability to pay for care and preventive health. The three year implementation plan was approved by the CH-F Board of Directors on Tuesday, June 28, 2016.

"We are very excited about the direction the Community Health Needs Assessment has provided for us. We look forward to the new projects and directives that will help us better meet the needs of our community" commented Roger Steinkruger, CEO.

Community Hospital-Fairfax wishes to thank everyone that participated in this process over the last year. Focus group members, those that completed the survey and the CH-F staff that contributed ideas and support to the process are all greatly appreciated.
