Ideas for Action


In February 2016, Regional Health’s Vice President of Safety, Quality, and Risk Management presented the results of Rapid City’s Same Day Surgery Center 2015 Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) to the Healers and Transformers Community group who then held a discussion to prioritize the needs for the community. The group is comprised of hospital caregivers and community representatives. The group reviewed the areas of opportunity identified in the CHNA and decided to focus on the following three priority areas as part of their upcoming Community Health Improvement Plan:

  • Access to Healthcare Services
  • Mental Health
  • Nutrition, Weight, and Physical Activity
