Community Health Needs Assessment

Every three years, Hocking County conducts a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA). The Hocking County Community Health Improvement Team has contracted with Rural Health Innovations, LLC a subsidiary of the National Rural Health Resource Center to conduct the 2023 CHNA. One way they gather information on the county is to hold “Focus Groups” where they share data and ask for your input. This is an excellent way for community members to share their opinions in an honest yet confidential environment.

The goal of this focus group is to assist the Hocking County Community Health Improvement Team in identifying strengths and needs of health services for the region. This information will be used for strategic planning, grant applications, new programs and by community groups interested in addressing health in the region. This process will help to maintain quality healthcare in the community.

We are offering four different focus groups.

· Monday 10/23 6pm-8pm Chieftain Center- Logan High School

· Tuesday 10/24 9am-11am Logan Hocking County District Library

· Wednesday 10/25 Noon-2pm Scenic Hills Senior Center

· Wednesday 10/25 3pm-5pm Scenic Hills Senior Center

If you would like to participate in a focus group, please email Faith at the National Rural Health Resource Center by phone (218-514-0107) or e-mail ( by Friday October 13th. Be sure to let her know that you are with Hocking County. Thank you for your willingness to give feedback regarding the health and wellness of Hocking County.
