Golden Valley Memorial Healthcare, Compass Health Network and Henry County Health Department Request Your Input on Community Health Needs
Clinton, Mo. – (Sept. 1, 2022) – Golden Valley Memorial Healthcare, in partnership with Compass Health Network and Henry County Health Department, are working on the 2022 Henry and Benton County Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA).
This assessment is a follow-up to meet final IRS regulations released in January 2015, requiring all 501(c) (3) hospitals to conduct a Community Health Needs Assessment and adopt an implementation strategy at least once every three years.
The goal of this assessment update is to understand the progress in addressing community health needs cited in the 2019 CHNA report and to collect up-to-date community health perceptions and requests.
To help gather your input for the assessment update, a short online survey has been developed for you to complete.

VVV Consultants LLC, an independent research firm in Olathe, Kan., has been retained to conduct the countywide research for this assessment. All responses will be confidential.
“The Community Health Needs Assessment is important to help us drive the direction for healthcare in our county and the surrounding areas,” said Craig Thompson, CEO of Golden Valley Memorial Healthcare. “I encourage you to participate in the survey. We value your input.”
On Thursday, October 13, a meeting will be held at the Rotary Building from 5:30-7 p.m. to review the survey results. A light dinner will be provided starting at 5:15 p.m. The public is invited to attend.
