As our community grows, we're expanding our services with unprecedented growth and modernization designed to bring total family medical care to the Panola County region.
Community Health Needs Assessment
The purpose of this Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) report is to provide Panola Medical Center with a functioning tool to guide the hospital as it works to improve the health of the community it serves. In addition, the report meets the guidelines of the Internal Revenue Service.
The results of the CHNA will guide the development of Panola Medical Center’s community health improvement initiatives and implementation strategies. This is a report that may be used by many of the hospital’s collaborative partners in the community.
The assessment was performed and the implementation strategies were created by the Community Health Needs Assessment Steering Committee with assistance from HORNE LLP. The assessment was conducted in April and May 2018.
The main input was provided by previous patients, employees and community representatives. An opportunity to offer input was made available to the entire community through word of mouth, plus a published and publicly available survey. Additional information came from public databases, reports, and publications by state and national agencies.
In this report, which has been approved and supported by our Board of Trustees, we discuss the health priorities that we will focus on over the next year and a half. The CHNA report is available on the hospital’s website https://www.panolamed.com/, or a printed copy may be obtained from the hospital’s administrative office.
We sincerely appreciate the opportunity to continue to be a part of this community. We look forward to working with you to improve the overall health of those we serve in Panola County.
