Understanding the health needs of our community and what Gunnison Valley
Health is doing to address them
In the fall of 2016, we conducted a Community Health Needs Assessment in
conjunction with Montrose Memorial Hospital and Delta County Memorial
Hospital. Information was sought from a variety of our community members
including representatives from healthcare, government, clergy, business,
and non-profit communities, among others. Once gathered, the findings
were analyzed presented to a team of representatives from GVH. The team
considered the needs that were highlighted and identified the steps we
have taken as a health system to address them. The team also identified
potential steps that could be taken or programs that are going to be implemented
in the future that further address the key needs.
The significant needs identified by the community in the 2016 assessment are:
- Mental Health/Suicide/Drug Abuse/Alcohol Abuse.
- Access to Physicians.
- Cancer Care Services.
For each of these three, Gunnison Valley Health has taken concrete and
significant steps to address the need and improve the services we offer.
We remain committed to the health of our community and addressing the
needs identified by our community members.
