Voice your opinion about Health Care in the region

Pella — Community members in Marion, Mahaska and Jasper counties may soon be receiving a survey in their mailbox. This survey, sent to a random number of homes, will help Pella Regional Health Center identify the health services needed in our region. The information will be used for grant applications, new programs and by community groups interested in addressing health issues.

The survey is being conducted with assistance from the National Rural Health Resource Center of Duluth, Minn. and will analyze local community needs, use of local health care services and overall community health.

“We are pleased to be able to bring some of the best community health resources to individuals in this region,” said Bob Kroese, CEO of Pella Regional Health Center. “The goal of this initiative is to help us identify and address the present and future needs in the best way possible.”

The results of the assessment and a health implementation plan will be available for community review by the end of the year.

Pella Regional Health Center is a not-for-profit provider of health care that is accredited by The Joint Commission. Its mission is to provide healthcare and healing services with Christian compassion.

Information on Pella Regional Health Center and its clinics is available by calling Public Relations at 641-621-2358 or visiting the website,
