NEW BRUNSWICK HOSPITALS LAUNCH ONLINE SURVEY TO IDENTIFY HEALTH CARE NEEDS OF MIDDLESEX COUNTY AND FRANKLIN (SOMERSET) RESIDENTS

Let's shape the future of health care for your community together!

(New Brunswick) - Residents of Middlesex County and the Somerset section of Franklin Township will have a chance to help improve health care services in their communities by participating in a brief online survey which is now open.

Staff from Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital (RWJUH), an RWJBarnabas Health Facility and Saint Peter’s University Hospital (SPUH), a member of Saint Peter’s Healthcare System, will reach out to residents as part of a community needs assessment they are conducting to help identify critical health issues and plan future health initiatives. The brief online survey is conducted in both English and Spanish.

To participate in the survey, please go to rwjbh.org/chna and share your thoughts regarding health needs for you, your family and community.

The survey will take approximately 10 minutes and all responses are kept completely anonymous. Residents’ feedback will help inform future health care programming and services for the community.

“We encourage all residents to participate because it is extremely important for our hospitals and health care providers to have a clear understanding of our community’s health care needs,” explains Mariam Merced, director of Community Health Promotions at RWJUH. “The information we collect will allow us to better coordinate health care services, outreach, education, and prevention efforts in the diverse communities we serve.”

Marge Drozd, MSN, RN, APRN-BC, director of Community Health Services at SPUH, adds, “Both hospitals serve diverse communities that have unique health care needs. This is an excellent opportunity for residents to have a voice and make a direct impact on future health care services that will directly address their needs.”
