Health partners request participation in a community health survey

MAYVILLE, NY: Chautauqua County Department of Health and Human Services is conducting a community health assessment to gather information on Chautauqua County’s current health status, needs and issues. The information helps develop a plan to improve community health by justifying how and where resources should be used.

All county residents are encouraged to participate in this process by completing the Chautauqua County Community Health Survey. Participating in the Community Health Assessment is a great way to improve the health of your community. As a community member, you know the needs and strengths of your community. Your opinion and advice is important in making decisions about Chautauqua County’s health care needs. Your responses to the health survey questions are confidential.

Take the survey online at the following websites: English: https://forms.gle/DbppMnCAKtvy3oKT9 Spanish: https://forms.gle/UPxjvFGMdA8qd5B88 .

Links to the surveys are also available on the Chautauqua County website: http://www.healthychq.com . Several municipal and medical facilities throughout the county also have paper copies. If you would like paper copies for your neighborhood or local authority, please contact us at 716-753-4699.

The survey will take 5-10 minutes to fill out and will be available until March 15th. All individual answers are confidential. Future health programs in Chautauqua County will be guided by combined responses.

Survey-takers have the opportunity to provide contact information (not linked to survey responses) to win one of five $40 Amazon gift cards to be randomly drawn.

Partners in this effort include Brooks – TLC Hospital System, UPMC Chautauqua, Westfield Memorial Hospital, Chautauqua County Department of Mental Hygiene, Chautauqua County Department of Health and Human Services, and many community partner agencies.

Local health departments are required under the NYS Health Act to work with community partners to conduct a community health assessment and community health improvement plan.
