Community Health Survey

Community Health Improvement Survey for Ashland, Bayfield, and Iron Counties

Memorial Medical Center (MMC) and the Ashland, Bayfield, and Iron County Health Departments are working together to conduct each organization’s Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA). 

One of the first steps in conducting the 2021-2023 CHNA is to gather feedback from the community and gain support by asking residents to complete a short survey.

This survey is specifically to learn about and improve health issues in our region. Participation is voluntary. Your answers will be anonymous and combined with those of all other survey respondents. The results will be shared with community members who are interested in improving the health of our community. The survey should take about 5-7 minutes.
