DeKalb Medical is pleased to present this Community Health Assessment and Implementation Plan.

Through the tremendous help of the DeKalb County Board of Health and with the input of many community leaders, the health status of DeKalb County and the service area of our facility in south DeKalb County has been identified, priorities assessed and tactics determined to address an appropriate number of the priorities.

Click on the links below to view the Downtown Decatur Community Health Needs Assessment report and Implementation Plan:

    Many factors affect a community’s health status and no hospital can address every facet of health status. The aspects of our society that directly or indirectly influence physical and emotional well being are known as the “social determinants of health.” These include, for example, socioeconomic conditions, access to resources such as healthy food and quality healthcare, and social norms and attitudes.

    While DeKalb Medical supports efforts to find solutions to these problems, there are many other community organizations that can and do great work in these arenas. DeKalb Medical will focus on the personal health and wellness needs of the communities it serves.

    The DeKalb Medical Board of Directors has adopted the Community Health Assessment and Implementation Plan and is committed to using the tactics identified to address the health priorities selected as appropriate for the organization’s hospitals.

    Sincerely,
    John Shelton
    President & CEO
