Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare Seeking Feedback from Local Residents for Community Health Survey

Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare (TMH) is seeking feedback from local residents regarding healthcare needs in the region.

Every three years, as part of the Affordable Care Act, TMH completes a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) to collect valuable information that helps to identify healthcare needs, priorities, concerns and barriers within its primary service area.

Responses will help to guide TMH’s organizational strategy, outreach and partnerships as it works to create healthier communities for everyone within the region it serves.

The assessment includes a survey that is open to anyone 18 years of age and older who lives in Leon, Gadsden, Jefferson and Wakulla counties. The survey – conducted in partnership with Florida State University (FSU) – takes less than 10 minutes to complete and is available at TMH.ORG/CHNA. It will remain active through March 31, 2022.

“It’s important that we receive as many survey responses as possible from residents of our community,” said Afaf Qasem, Director of Health Promotion at TMH. “These survey responses will help our organization take steps over the next few years to better serve the healthcare needs of our community, such as forming partnerships with local health departments and initiating lifestyle and wellness programs to help address social determinants of health, especially for populations at risk and those with barriers to accessing healthcare.”
