What are the greatest health needs of our community? You can share your thoughts by taking the Community Health Needs Assessment Survey being conducted by the Lake Area Community Health Partners committee. This group includes Lake Regional Health System, area health departments, Central Ozarks Medical Center, local schools and others.

This survey is intended to determine the health needs of residents of Camden, Miller and Morgan counties. Lake Regional will work with public health officials and community leaders to address the needs identified by the survey.

All residents of Camden, Miller and Morgan counties are invited to take the online survey. Paper surveys are available by calling 573.348.8222. To thank the public for participating, the group is offering $5 Amazon gift cards for completed surveys (partially completed surveys do not earn the incentive).

Along with the survey, Lake Regional conducted community focus groups to hear firsthand about gaps in the services available to keep area residents healthy.

Under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, nonprofit hospitals nationwide must conduct a comprehensive Community Health Needs Assessment every three years. Past surveys conducted by Lake Regional Health System are available at
