Piedmont Healthcare will be holding a series of town hall meetings in the coming weeks in the areas surrounding each of the Piedmont-affiliated hospitals throughout Georgia. Results from recent community health needs assessments specific to each hospital’s community will be discussed.
“It is important to know where our communities stand in terms of health needs,” said Holly Lang, director of community benefit at Piedmont Healthcare. “By sharing our findings with the public and developing programs to address these needs, together we’ll be able to tackle these issues and make our communities healthier.”
In addition to sharing the findings of the recent community health needs assessments, representatives from Piedmont will be discussing future health programs to address the identified health needs for each community.
“Our assessments show there is a wide variety of health issues to address,” said Lang. “The most common issues include access to care, obesity, preventable hospital readmissions, diabetes and heart disease. Now, we need to work as a community to proactively address these shared concerns.”
The Piedmont Fayette Hospital town hall meeting will be held Thursday, Feb. 28 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Fayette Chamber of Commerce – 600 West Lanier Ave., Suite 205, Fayetteville. The meeting is open to the public and should last approximately two hours.
Lang said those wanting to attend and participate in the community health needs discussion should reserve seats by calling 770-719-6060. Please specify if special auxiliary needs are required such as interpreters so arrangements can be made.
