Community Health Assessment

A Community Health Needs Assessment is an assessment that identifies health needs and issues through data collection and analysis.  In other words – what is our community in need of and how can Kearney County Health Services assist in obtaining those services or resources.  The Community Health Assessment was developed by a planning committee that included participation from approximately 20 Kearney County Stakeholders in conjunction with Two Rivers Public Health Department.  The report documents the participant’s observations and insights.  The data is then analyzed to determine potential community engagement projects.
