We Want To Hear From You: Take the Community Health Survey

Health and Community Services

SAN JUAN COUNTY, WA. November 9, 2023 – San Juan County Health & Community Services (HCS) wants to hear from all County residents in its Community Health Survey. The anonymous survey takes only eight to ten minutes and will help HCS better understand how all islanders are doing. The results of the survey will identify areas of improvement and set a path towards creating a healthier community for all.

You can take the survey online in English or Spanish. If you are having trouble accessing the survey online, please call the HCS front office at 360-378-4474 to ask to take the survey in another format. There are questions about quality of life, access to health care, how people get health-related information, and what are some of the barriers to good health in our county. The more people we hear from, the more complete our picture will be of how our San Juan County community members are doing.

The survey results collected by the end of November will be compiled and analyzed along with other data about our community. The results of the surveys will be published as a final report and will be available to our community in early 2024.

HCS staff will work closely with our partners around the islands to use the findings to create a Community Health Improvement Plan. The information gathered during the Community Health Survey, interviews and focus group meetings will help HCS identify the top issues our community is facing around health and wellness and work together with community partners to plan the actions and services needed to improve our community’s health.
