Jefferson Healthcare and the Jefferson County Public Health Department are working together on a community health assessment expected to be conducted early in 2014.
After the assessment is finished, a plan will be developed to address community health risks and issues.
The last health assessment was completed in 2010 and updated in 2011.
The assessment collects data specific to Jefferson County residents, compiling data on demographics, health risks, access to health care, mental health, alcohol and drug use, births, deaths and quality of life issues.
Hospital and county health department staff members began meeting in October to map out a plan for the assessment, the hospital said.
