(STURGIS) – Getting St. Joseph County residents healthier is the goal of five organizations.

In 2016, they came together to do a Community Health Needs Assessment. Sturgis Hospital CEO Rob LaBarge says there were two reasons for conducting the assessment. First, it helps health experts know the needs of County residents, and it must be done every few years by the Hospital.

LaBarge says with this health needs assessment, there was a collaborative effort. Sturgis Hospital, Three Rivers Health, Community Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services, Covered Bridge Health Care and the Health Department worked together to create the assessment.

LaBarge says he had one plan in mind with this assessment and the results. That was to have all of the participating organizations have the same data and work together to address the needs.

Five issues were identified from the assessment: Diabetes; Education and Prevention regarding health; Sufficient Availability Of Health Care Professionals; Mental Health Needs and Obesity and Physical Inactivity.

A copy of the health needs assessment is on the web page of Sturgis Hospital.
