Partnering with Holleran, a nationally known research firm, ECHN's goal was to identify the area's current healthcare needs. To do this, publicly available data from the U.S. Census Bureau, local and state health departments, and many other community agencies were examined, and over 1,800 randomly selected households were surveyed."The knowledge gained by conducting this survey is invaluable," says Dennis McConville, ECHN's Senior Vice President of Planning, Marketing & Communications. "Identifying the key health issues facing our community neighbors will enable us to evaluate the programs that we currently offer and develop programs that address the specific needs."4860.647.4753
