What are the top issues affecting the health of your community? King’s Daughters Medical Center wants to know!

Now through June 30, KDMC is asking residents of Boyd, Carter, Floyd, Greenup, Johnson and Lawrence counties in Kentucky and Scioto and Lawrence counties in Ohio to participate in an online needs assessment.

The survey can be found online at

The survey includes questions about access to primary care, specialist physicians, health insurance coverage and use of emergency and urgent care treatment facilities. Participants are asked to identify the top five health issues in their communities and the challenges individuals face in getting healthcare services.

The online survey is part of KDMC’s community needs assessment. Survey responses will be used in conjunction with other research to develop plans to meet community needs over the next three years.

All responses are strictly confidential and will not be linked to any name, ISP, email or any other identifier.

Upon request, KDMC will provide an electronic copy of the needs assessment, once complete, to those who provide their email address.

For more information about the Community Needs Assessment, please contact Debbie Miller, manager of community relations, at 408-9295.

My concerns are about getting health insurance. I live in Ironton,OH 45638, Lawrence County. Another concern is free mamograms and breast and pelvic exams for those who do not have insurance. Thank you for your time.
