Community Needs Assessment

Every three years, King's Daughters' Health completes a Community Health Needs Assessment to help identify the leading health-related issues facing individuals and families in the communities we serve.

KDH completed its most recent Community Health Needs Assessment in the Fall, 2016. A complete summary and a variety of other links are listed below. Working together, we hope the information gathered during the survey processes will serve as a stepping stone toward better health for everyone.

Tobacco use, substance abuse, and obesity continue to be major risk factors in our area. A copy of the CHNA report is available for public inspection by calling the Community Relations office at 812.801.0128.

While no one person, organization or group can solve these issues individually, we can make a difference if we work together. King's Daughters' Health has taken an active role in community wellness activities. Through available grants and other initiatives, we have helped facilitate programs such as the Tobacco Cessation Program and Creating Positive Relations Program (abstinence-based sexual education). We also work with local businesses to improve the health and wellness of employees throughout the region. Further, KDH offers a variety of exercise and fitness opportunities.
