Community Health Needs Assessment for Olmsted County

The third Community Health Needs Assessment Survey for Olmsted County will be mailed to 2000 randomly selected households throughout Olmsted County beginning September 24, 2018. Information from the community survey provides valuable information which will help community leaders define and clarify the most pressing health priorities in our area. The survey takes an estimated 15 minutes to complete and asks questions related to clinical care, the physical environment, personal behaviors and other factors that affect our health. Households receiving the survey are encouraged to complete and return it using the postage free envelope included the mailing. To get the best and most accurate information and data about our community, we rely on people completing and returning the survey in a timely manner. Participation in the survey is completely voluntary and all answers are strictly confidential; no identifying information will ever be linked to any of the responses.

The Community Health Needs Assessment is a collaborative effort that began in 2012 and continues to be led by Olmsted County Public Health Services, Olmsted Medical Center, and Mayo Clinic. In addition to these lead agencies, there are numerous community organizations that contribute to the overall process and are committed to keeping our community healthy.
