Schoolcraft Memorial Hospital Releases 2016 Community Health Needs Assessment for Schoolcraft County

The community health needs assessment was conducted in 2016 by Western Upper Peninsula Health Department (WUPHD) in partnership with Schoolcraft Memorial Hospital (SMH) in Manistique, Michigan, with assistance from community members who attended focus groups. The assessment primarily covers the health of residents of Schoolcraft County but also includes data from neighboring counties in the Luce-Mackinac-Alger-Schoolcraft public health district for comparison or where single-county data are not available.

The purpose of this assessment is to provide a picture of the health status and needs of Schoolcraft County’s 8,200 residents and of residents of the neighboring counties the SMH catchment area overlaps. The report was authored and edited by Ray Sharp, Director of Community Health Promotion and Education at Western U.P. Health Department in Hancock.

The report is intended to inform health practitioners, planners, policymakers, and the public. It can be read as a snapshot of the region’s health status and trends and used to determine priorities for hospital strategic planning and the broader community health improvement process. If knowledge is power, it is hoped that this report will empower citizens and health care professionals alike to work effectively for improved health and wellbeing in Schoolcraft County and the Eastern Upper Peninsula region.
