Community Health Needs Assessments
Chicot Memorial Medical Center, a critical access hospital located in the city of Lake Village in Chicot County, Arkansas, is a 501 (c) 3 not for profit organization. In order to fulfill the hospital’s mission and retain tax exempt status, it must provide programs and services that intentionally assess and respond to local community health needs. Chicot Memorial Medical Center provides community benefits by offering health education, free community health screenings, a free community center offering exercise classes, support for local athletic activities, and community health initiatives. Further, every three years CMMC conducts a survey assessing the needs of Chicot County residents and hospital stakeholders in the surrounding area. The assessment includes input from persons representing broad interests of the community served by the Chicot Memorial Medical Center, including those with public health expertise. These individuals form the community advisory committee. The community advisory committee assisted hospital staff in collecting survey data that indicate the most pressing health concerns in the hospital service area. Upon identifying the health issue priorities, the Chicot Memorial Medical Center’s community needs assessment steering committee will create an action plan to address some of these issues through resources available to the hospital. All completed reports will be made available to the public.
