    2013 Community Health Needs Assessment – Knox

    The Community Health Needs Assessment provides a roadmap to help communities reach their destination of a healthier place to call home.  Parkwest Medical Center is hopeful that the Together! Healthy Knox initiative will be a catalyst for meaningful collaboration and action as we address some of the most important health improvement opportunities facing Knox County.

    The Affordable Care Act requires not-for-profit hospitals to conduct a needs assessment every three years and to create an Implementation Plan to address the significant findings.  This effort will assist us in “connecting the dots” between Parkwest’s resources and the needs of the community, identifying additional resources, and engaging with our community partners in initiatives that benefit Knox County residents.

    This process could not have been done without the leadership of the Knox County Health Department and the Together! Healthy Knox Leadership Team. Their expertise, use of the MAPP process, meeting facilitation and guidance ultimately resulted in the most comprehensive health assessment process ever undertaken in Knox County. We deeply appreciate their commitment to the assessment process and we are happy to be included as a partner.
