Community Health Needs Assessment - Saint Joseph Hospital

Community Health Needs Assessment 2013 Clinical care (5 measures) Social and economic (7 measures) Physical environment (4 measures) Those having high ranks, e.g. 1 or 2, are considered to be the “healthiest.” A more detailed discussion about the ranking system, data sources and measures, data quality and calculating scores and ranks can be found at the website for County Health Rankings (www.countyhealthrankings.org). As part of this community health needs assessment, the relative health status of Shelby County is compared to the state of Kentucky and a national benchmark. A better understanding of the factors that affect the health of the community will assist with how to improve the community’s habits, culture and environment. The following table from County Health Rankings summarizes the 2012 health outcomes for Shelby County, the primary community for Jewish Hospital Shelbyville. Each measure is described and includes a confidence interval or error margin surrounding it–– if a measure is above the state average and the state average is beyond the error margin for the county, then further investigation is recommended. Health Outcomes—rankings are based on an equal weighting of one length of life (mortality) measure and four quality of life (morbidity) measures. Shelby County compares favorably to the state of Kentucky on most measures, but ranks poorly on national benchmarks. Exhibit 13 summarizes the health rankings for Shelby, Henry and Spencer counties.

Community Health Needs Assessment 2013 Primary Data Community Input-Surveys As previously stated, to obtain feedback from the general public, surveys were conducted in Shelby County by the North Central District Health Department, in collaboration with Jewish Hospital Shelbyville and a consortium of community organizations. This included an assessment of primary factors of a healthy community, primary health problems facing Shelby County, greatest risk factors, and barriers to receiving care. The majority of respondents agreed that cost/expense was the biggest barrier to health care. Other barriers include inability to take off from work to receive care and limited office hours. The survey solicited input from participants regarding health problems of the community. Addiction (alcohol, illegal drugs and tobacco) and obesity were identified as the biggest health problems in the Shelby County. While community input has been received, the NCDHD is in the early stages of completing their first assessment. Data has not been analyzed, nor have they developed action plans. Health Issues of Uninsured Persons, Low-Income Persons and Minority Groups While there is no data on specific issues related to uninsured, low-income or minority groups in Shelby County, other larger communities have assessed this impact and report: Citizens in the poorest neighborhoods have lower life expectancies. Opportunities for physical activity in some neighborhoods could be impeded by safety issues including hazards for pedestrians and bicyclists, or high rates of violent crime. Violence in the Community According to the Kentucky State Police data, Shelby County’s violent crime offenses are higher, at 300 offenses per 100,000, than the state offense rate of 267. Shelby County ranks lower than the national offense rate of 469 offenses per 100,000. Drug arrests are slightly lower than the state rate. Page 10
