St. Joseph's Hospital Community Engagement

St. Joseph’s Hospital's mission speaks to our commitment to improving the quality of life for the communities we serve. To that end, we reach beyond the walls of our hospital into Washington County with a diverse offering of services and programs that benefit "vulnerable populations" — people with limited/affordable access to health care services.

We are proud of our commitment to your health and well-being. One step at a time, St. Joseph’s Hospital will continue to improve the quality of life in our community and beyond.

Community Health Needs Assessment

In February 2012, St. Joseph’s Hospital collaborated on a community survey with JKV Research, LLC, along with Aurora Health Care, Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, Columbia St. Mary’s Health System, ProHealth Care, Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare and the Washington County Health Department. Here is the report from that survey.

Washington County Community Health Survey Report

The assessment was the compilation of state, county and community health assessments along with interviews from 34 different community informants ranging from school district representatives, public health officials, non-profit health and human service professionals, churches, police/fire departments, free clinics and business professionals throughout Washington County.
