Newton Medical Center partnered with the Harvey County Health Department, Prairie View, Health Ministries, and the City of Newton to develop a Community Health Assessment for our county. The purpose of the project is to identify and evaluate health needs and opportunities for our county.
Your help with this project is essential as we seek better ways in not only caring for our population but in developing strategies to improve its health. An organization called K-State Rural Health Works will help with this effort by conducting phone interviews. I urge you to participate if you should be selected to be a part of the study. Phone contacts from Fort Hays University will begin in the evenings beginning Oct, 1. This short survey of about 10 minutes will involve questions concerning your experience with health care needs and services in Harvey County. Everyone who does not receive a call but wants to be a part of this important study can complete a survey online at All individual responses are completely confidential. If you have any questions, please call me at 804-6001.
