Carroll County Seeks Community Input on Local Health Needs

Over the next few months, Manning Regional Healthcare Center (MRHC) will be working with area providers and partners to update the 2019 Carroll County Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA). We are seeking input from community members regarding the healthcare needs in order to complete the 2022 CHNA.

VVV Consultants LLC, an independent research firm from Olathe, KS has been retained to conduct this countywide research. The goal of this assessment update is to understand progress in addressing community health needs cited in the both the 2016 and 2019 assessment reports, while collecting up-to-date community health perceptions and ideas.

A brief community survey has been developed in order to accomplish this work. The survey can be accessed by visiting if you would like to participate in providing this important feedback.

All community residents and business leaders are encouraged to complete the 2022 CHNA online survey by Thursday, March 3rd, 2022. In addition, please HOLD the date for the Town Hall meeting scheduled for Dinner on Thursday, March 24th, 2022. Please stay tuned for more information to come soon. Thank you in advance for your time and support.

If you have any questions regarding CHNA activities, please call Julie Hodne at (712) 655-8179.
