North Valley Hospital District requests input

TONASKET The North Valley Hospital District sent out 2,000 surveys to households in the district last week to solicit community input on health care needs in the district.

The hospital district is conducting the survey to help plan for the future health care services at the hospital. Survey responses will help the Board of Commissioners determine the types of care and services that fit the health needs of North Valley residents.

North Valley Hospital District Board Chair Helen Casey encourages all residents to return their surveys right away.

“The surveys take only about 10 minutes of your time but each question is important,” Casey said. “The time that people invest in completing the survey will help us create a community-centered plan for our future. The community’s input is invaluable.”

Residents who do not receive a mailed copy of the survey are invited to take the survey on-line. The survey can be found at

Surveys are due on March 20.

North Valley Hospital District selected Community Link Consulting, an independent health care consulting firm as their partner to administer the survey. Community Link Consulting will compile the data and present the report to the NVHD Board of Commissioners at a planning meeting at the end of the month.

The Board of Commissioners is committed to providing quality health care to the all residents of the North Valley.
