New Three-Year Community Health Needs Assessment Released

Summit Pacific’s CEO, Josh Martin, to Host Town Hall Events Nov. 16 and 17

(ELMA, WA) – Summit Pacific Medical Center is in the process of drafting the new Grays Harbor County Public Hospital District #1 (CHNA). The CHNA helps determine what the greatest health needs are for the community to focus on for the next three years and provides the basis for strategic plan development and the organization’s master facility plan.

The draft report — the 2023-2025 Grays Harbor County Public Hospital District #1 Community Health Needs Assessment — provides an in-depth look at health factors impacting our community such as education, household income, age, and ethnicity. The report also compares our community’s health outcomes to state averages.

Josh Martin, CEO invites community members to attend one of Summit Pacific’s two upcoming Community Forums where he will be sharing top health concerns, taking questions, and soliciting feedback on our community health priorities for the next three years.

Two community forums are being offered:

  1. Wednesday, November 16 at 5:30 p.m. in Summit Pacific’s Ortquist Conference Center
  2. Thursday, November 17 at 5:30 p.m. at the McCleary Community Center

These events are free and open to the public, no RSVP needed.
