Following the completion of two recent community health surveys, the Winona Health Board of Directors has chosen three priorities for its leadership focus in the next three years.
Those three priorities are: mental health services, preventive care services, and the promotion of healthy lifestyles to fight obesity.
Winona Health collaborated with Winona County Public Health and other local organizations over the past three years in developing and conducting the survey. The process engaged a wide range of community stakeholders.
The result was a 32-page report after six thousand surveys were mailed out to residents in the 55987 zip code. Two surveys were conducted in 2013 with the response rate on each survey about 30-percent.
The assessment is available online at winonahealth.org and paper copies are available for review at Winona Health's Community Engagement Department.
