Community Health Needs Assessment Now UnderwayCampbell County Memorial Hospital is currently conducting a
Community Health Needs Assessment in conjunction with stakeholders from many segments of the community. The assessment incorporates components of primary data collection and secondary data analysis that focuses on the health and social needs of the community.
The first meeting, held October 17, identified community leaders in the sectors of Community-At-Large, Community/Institution, Healthcare, School, and Worksite. These leaders will collect and compile data from their specific sectors to identify priorities that will be used to develop the Community Action Plan and implementation of the identified community needs.
In addition, a survey has been developed to collect additional data from the community. The survey is available on the CCMH website, www.ccmh.net. The scrolling bar, "Latest Health News", will list a link to the survey, or you can click on the "
News and Events" tab to access a pdf copy, print it out and send it back to the address listed on the last page.

Kiwanis Accepts Coats of All SizesThe Kiwanis Club is collecting coats at CCMH again this year. Look for the collection box outside the cafeteria beginning November 1. The club gave away over 1000 coats to those in need last year, and is hoping for even more donations in 2012. Coats are given out at the Soup Kitchen, the ABATE toy store and through Campbell County School District. Kiwanis accepts coats of all sizes, and are expanding their requests to include plus size men's and women's coats. All coats are cleaned before they are donated. The box will be in place through the holidays-just in case a new coat is on your Christmas list.
Fish Tank FunThe Neighbors of
Pioneer Manor Advisory Council have been working with Pioneer Manor staff to "bring the outdoors indoors" for residents, according to council member Vicki Kissack. Four 74 gallon circular tanks filled with fish and aquatic plant life have been put together and placed near the chapel at Pioneer Manor. The tanks are themed-cichlid, Disney, glow and nature-and feature different fish inside such as angel fish, cichlids, GloFish® and tiger barbs.
Camelot Pet Castle owners Brian and Stacy Geer were contracted to help create the atmosphere and will attend to the tanks monthly. According to Vicki, residents really enjoy interacting with the fish-even naming them and checking in on them daily.
