Community Healthcare Needs Assessment

Executive Summary

General Condition and Public Health Needs

The assessment conducted a virtual windshield survey to evaluate various aspects of Jordan, Minnesota, including educational systems, health services, and environmental factors. The city exhibited a thriving environment with adequate educational facilities, health services, and recreational amenities. However, challenges such as limited healthcare resources and the vulnerability to diseases due to increased access to restaurants were identified. Limitations of the survey included resource constraints and community members’ reluctance to communicate openly.

Environmental Analysis and Social Determinants of Health

Environmental factors such as population demographics, educational resources, and healthcare accessibility significantly influence community health. Jordan, with a growing population and robust educational infrastructure, exhibits potential for improved health literacy and overall well-being. Access to healthcare organizations, recreational facilities, and religious institutions further contributes to population health. Challenges include limited transportation infrastructure and uncertainties regarding socioeconomic factors impacting health behaviors.

Conclusion

The assessment highlights Jordan’s favorable community conditions but underscores the need for expanded healthcare and educational resources to accommodate the growing population. Addressing these needs through enhanced infrastructure and sustainable management strategies is crucial for promoting community well-being.
