Daniel E. Regenye, Ocean County Health Department (OCHD) Public Health Coordinator, stated, “The The Ocean County Health Advisory Group, which is comprised of the Ocean County and Long Beach Island Health Departments, Community Medical Center, Kimball Medical Center, Ocean Medical Center and Southern Ocean Medical Center, the Center for Health, Education, Medicine and Dentistry (CHEMED) and Ocean Health Initiatives (OHI), are all collaborating together to conduct a Countywide Community Health Needs Assessment in 2012.
Ocean County Freeholder Director Gerry P. Little, Liaison to the Ocean County Board of Health, added, “This joint effort will assist in identifying and coordinating healthcare services amongst the various healthcare agencies in the county. The survey will be available from June 1 – July 30. The Health Department has put the survey on its website in both English and Spanish, which can be accessed at www.ochd.org. Hard copies will also be available at various sites throughout Ocean County.”
Brunilda Price, Coordinator, OCHD Community Health Services, said, “The Community Health Survey is part of the countywide community health needs assessment process and will provide insight in what you, as a county resident, feels are the pressing healthcare needs in the county. Participation by Ocean County residents is crucial in helping to identify what are the most important health issues that affect their health and well-being.
All responses are anonymous and will be part of the final Ocean County Health Improvement Plan.”
