Community Health Assessment Survey
New York State relies on local health departments to promote, protect, and improve the health of their residents. The Genesee, Orleans and Wyoming County health departments and local hospitals are working with community partners to collect information to help with public health planning for the next several years. The information is put into documents called Community Health Assessment (CHA) and Community Services Plan (CSP).
To fully assess the health status of our communities we are asking for your input! We are using Survey Monkey for those who will take the survey on computers and will have paper copies of the surveys at local libraries, various events and throughout each of the counties for those who do not have access to computers.
Watch the Health Department Web sites for the link to the survey:
- Genesee County: www.co.genesee.ny.us/departments/health/index.html;
- Orleans County: www.orleansny.com/publichealth
- Wyoming County: www.wyomingco.net/health/main.html
You can also access the link at this address:
The survey is anonymous and only takes about 15 minutes to complete. Your honest thoughts and opinions will help guide efforts in resolving local health issues over the next several years.
The survey can be taken by individuals living and/or working in Genesee, Orleans, and Wyoming counties. All ages are encouraged to take it for themselves. If you are under the age of 18 years old, be sure to receive permission to take the survey from your parent(s) or guardian(s).
Health departments and hospitals all across New York State are working hard to learn about your views because your health counts. Your responses will help us identify services that are working, need improving, or to be created. The more members of the public who take this survey, the larger and stronger the “building block” of these projects will be.
If you have any questions, or would like to comment on the survey, call your Health Department at 344-2580, ext. 5000, for Genesee County, 589-3278 for Orleans County, and 786-8890 for Wyoming County.
