Wood County Community Health Surveys
Bowling Green, Ohio – March 20, 2012

The Wood County Health Partners is surveying Wood County residents as part of a community health assessment. Approximately 800 Wood County residents ages 19 years and older were randomly selected to participate in the survey. The anonymous survey asks questions about general health, risk and protective health factors, and access to health care. These answers will create a current snapshot of the health of Wood County residents.  Health Partners is working closely with the Hospital Council of Northwest Ohio and researchers at the University of Toledo to conduct the survey.

People who receive the survey are urged to return the completed survey as soon as possible. So far only 22 percent of the people who were selected have done so. Last week, a second wave of surveys was mailed to residents.  If you have already answered and mailed back your survey, thank you. If not, please take a moment to answer and return it.  Your assistance will be appreciated.

Participation in the survey is voluntary, and responses will remain completely confidential. It should not take more than 20 minutes to answer the questions.

In addition to the adult survey, 1,600 parents of children ages 0 – 11 years were randomly chosen to take part in a child’s health survey.  Parents, please take the few minutes necessary to answer the survey and mail it back.  Your feedback is important.

The information from the surveys will be compared to the 2007-2008 Community Health Needs Assessment to determine if changes have occurred. The results will guide many public and private agencies in their program planning over the next several years by identifying key health problems.

The final community health assessment report will be published in late spring of 2012.  Later this year the results will be used to prioritize health needs and update the current community health improvement plan.

Health Partners is composed of many public and private agencies that make up the public health system. Some of the many partners include but not limited to: Wood County Hospital, Wood County Educational Service Center, Children’s Resource Center, Behavioral Connections, Wood County Board of Developmental Disabilities, Wood County Board of Health, Bowling Green State University Health and Human Services Department, Wood County Board of Mental Health and Recovery Services, United Way Services of Wood County, Board of County Commissioners, and the Ohio Department of Health.
