Community Health Needs Assessment

Community Health Needs Assessment

The mission of Western Missouri Medical Center is to improve the health of our greater community by utilizing system resources and partnering with community organizations and businesses. It is our hope that our health programming will empower people to manage their health and that it will inevitably transform lives.

Our priority areas, defined by the 2019 Johnson County Community Health Needs Assessment are Mental Health, Substance Use Disorder, & Suicide Prevention; Obesity; Dental Care for the Uninsured; Awareness of Available Healthcare Services; and Family Planning Services. We have defined projects and programs that are being developed, implemented and evaluated throughout the next three years to impact the health and wellness of our community.
