Meeting Set to Discuss Community Health Needs

Knoxville Hospital and Clinics is hosting a town hall meeting next month as they get set to conduct a comprehensive community health needs assessment. The organization will be partnering with Marion County Public Health and an independent health research and consulting firm from Kansas, using the information collected to guide how they address current and future health care needs. Around 1000 families will be receiving a survey in the mail soon that will help in the information gathering process.

The town hall meeting, which takes place on April 11th, from 5:30-7pm at Knoxville High School, will review those findings and help prioritize health needs. Knoxville Hospital and Clinics CEO Kevin Kincaid says he hopes the residents of Marion County will take advantage of the opportunity to provide input into the future of healthcare.
