Community Health Needs Assessment

Memorial Health System cares deeply about the health and welfare of the people in Dickinson County. Every three years, in accordance with federal regulations for private, non-profit health systems and hospitals, we conduct a comprehensive Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) to identify and understand the health needs of our local communities beyond the walls of our hospital. This helps us better identify ways in which we can support Abilene and Dickinson County and set goals to assist our community members in living healthy, fulfilling lives.

Below are the findings of our assessments in .pdf format, listed by calendar year.
