Help St. Joe’s with just a few minutes of your time

Do you have three minutes or so to spare?

St. Joseph Mercy Livingston (SJML) is conducting a Community Health Needs Assessment in our community. Every three years, this assessment helps SJML evaluate our changing health and social needs. Your valuable input helps SJML figure out what we need, not what conventional data might suggest we the need.

The survey is all about us, and this is why it’s important you take a couple minutes to complete it. It took me three minutes. Just three minutes, and while I was taking it I realized how even more important it is this year, during this time of COVID-19 and the critical needs the pandemic has created for us all.

According to SJML, the health needs identified by the assessment will be integrated into SJML’s three-year implementation plan designed to address the needs with activities that align with St. Joseph Mercy Livingston’s strategic initiatives, mission and vision. You can view the 2018 CHNA Report on the St. Joe’s website.

Your input is needed. Take the survey, and then share the link with everyone you know. Post it on Facebook. Tweet it out. The more people who complete the survey, the better the picture SJML gets of what we need in Livingston County, and the better it will be for services for us in the future.

Once the survey is closed and the report compiled, it will be posted on the SJML website, and used to prioritize areas for community health improvement and implementation planning.

Take the survey by clicking here: stjoeshealth/CHNAsurvey. The deadline has been extended to Nov. 15, but don’t need to wait until then.

Just do it.


It took me all of three minutes.
