Ideas for Action


In February 2016, Regional Health’s Vice President of Safety, Quality, and Risk Management presented the results of Spearfish Regional Hospital’s 2015 Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) to the hospital’s Advisory Board who then held a discussion to prioritize the needs for their community. The Advisory Board is comprised of hospital caregivers and community representatives. The Board reviewed the areas of opportunity identified in the CHNA and decided to focus on the following three priority areas as part of their upcoming Community Health Improvement Plan:

  • Access to Healthcare Services
  • Mental Health
  • Wellness and Public Visibility
