COLDWATER (WTVB) - Do you stay local when it comes health care or head out of Branch County for what you believe are better services? If you could have some input on improving the situation, would you step up to the plate or just leave the status quo alone?
There is an effort underway to better evaluate the health needs of the community and determine methods to potentially meet those needs. It’s a collaboration of the Community Health Center of Branch County with the Branch Hillsdale St. Joseph Community Health Agency, and the Branch County United Way. An on-line survey has been developed and is available for the public to take until March 17.
To take the survey, simply go on line to chcbc.com or bhsj.org. The survey link will also be posted on the Community Health Center’s Facebook page and other community Facebook pages. The survey takes an average of three to five minutes to complete. Those wishing to participate but lack internet access, you can pick up a copy of the survey at the hospital or health department office. All Branch County residents 18 years and older are encouraged to participate in the survey to assist in planning for a healthier tomorrow.
