Wider sample wanted for health survey

Residents of Mohave County - especially those in smaller communities such as Chloride, Dolan Springs, and Wikieup - are asked to provide their opinions and insights about health concerns in the area via a local online survey. The survey period ends Jan. 31.

The Mohave County Community Health Survey is available at or at Residents who do not have Internet access can take a paper copy of the survey in county public libraries.

Residents are not asked to reveal their identity.

The survey is part of a community health assessment being conducted by the Mohave County Department of Public Health and Kingman Regional Medical Center in partnership with numerous other public and private organizations throughout Mohave County.

In addition to surveying the public, the health assessment involves gathering local data and statistics on a variety of health indicators. The effort is a first in our area - never before has there been a comprehensive study of community health done with community member input at a local level. It will provide a realistic picture of the health needs and issues unique to our population, geography, and economy.

The results of the assessment will be published in the community health profile, which will be available in the spring. In turn, the community health profile will be used for planning and policies that address health concerns and needs in Mohave County communities.

According to Patty Mead, Mohave County Public Health director, over 1,100 county residents have already completed the survey since it was announced in early December. She hopes that more than double that number of people will respond by the end of the month.

"This is an opportunity for residents to let their voices be heard regarding health in their community," she states. "The more people who respond, the better picture we'll have of the health-related issues and needs in communities throughout Mohave County."

Why can't we get a VA hospital here in Kingman? KRMC has to be losing money with the new hospital sitting there pretty much empty. I don't understand, with KRMC not being a "for profit" facility, why don't they let the VA assume responsibility for it? You would think that having a tenant in the building is better than leaving it empty. VA should be able to cover operating costs. I know, I'm just being too sensible!
