Community Health Needs Assessment

Siouxland District Health Department, along with Dunes Surgical Hospital (Dunes), Mercy Medical Center (Mercy) and UnityPoint Health - St. Luke's completed a yearlong Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) in February 2016. 

The final report represents a collaborative process of researching, collecting and analyzing data, including a community focus group that was held at Mercy Medical Center in Aug. 2015. The joint CHNA looked at data from the following six counties in the tri-state Siouxland area, as each hospital serves a larger territory outside of Woodbury County:

  •        Union, SD
  •        Dakota, Dixon and Thurston, NE
  •        Plymouth and Woodbury, IA

After reviewing all the information and data available SDHD has decided to focus on improving Tobacco/Substance Abuse, Obesity, Access to Care, and Cancer Screenings over the next three years.  An implementation plan has been developed, with the goal of improving community health throughout Woodbury County.
