Thank you very much for taking this survey!  If you live, work, go to school, or spend time in Linn, Benton, or Lincoln County, we want to learn what you think about health issues.  Samaritan Health Services Hospitals are conducting their required needs assessments to develop their local plans to improve the health of our communities based on your feedback and input.

Please share your thoughts about the health of our communities.  You will not be asked to put your name on this survey – all responses are anonymous.  There are no right or wrong responses.  Any information you provide is useful.

Unless it says otherwise, you can only choose one response to each question, so please pick the response that best tells us what you think.  At the end of the survey there are some extra questions that will help us understand the people we serve.

Thank you!
