As Fort HealthCare continues to provide high quality healthcare, it is imperative we engage our community. Each year, our Community Health Assessment includes a door-to-door survey that occurs throughout the service area. We also seek input from representatives of community agencies, school districts, and area employers. The survey covers core issues, including access to healthcare, alcohol and tobacco use and other health-related behaviors, diet and nutrition, emotional and mental health, exercise, and insurance coverage.
The five most important issues uncovered in the most recent survey are:
Our strategies for addressing these issues include keeping area residents active and physically fit, engaged with primary care, out of the hospital, safe in their community and well in their workplace. We encourage our community and patients to work with their primary care physician or provider to promote early detection, prevention, and wellness; and to offer better management of chronic disease when it does occur. Education is an important facet of our work at Fort Healthcare. The contents of this website are designed to inform you of the wide range of services, specialized care, and support available through Fort HealthCare. You can also learn more about many health-related issues by reviewing the most current health information.
We’re committed to the health of our communities, and we’re always here to listen, understand, and respond to your health care concerns. We look forward to partnering with you with the goal of optimal health through your life journey. Together, with your help, we can achieve our Vision to be the healthiest community in Wisconsin.
