Atlantic General Hospital Conducts Community Needs Survey


In late August, Atlantic General Hospital will begin conducting a two-week long community needs assessment. The hospital has secured the assistance of RKM Research and Communications, Inc., a market research firm to conduct the research on the hospital’s behalf.

The 25-minute telephone survey will be administered to randomly selected households in Worcester County, Md., and portions of lower Sussex County, Del., eastern Wicomico County, Md., and northern Accomack County in Virginia.

The purpose of the survey is to obtain opinions concerning healthcare in our communities so that Atlantic General Hospital and Health System can better plan to meet residents’ healthcare needs in the future.

All responses to the survey will be kept confidential, hospital officials state. Atlantic General will receive only summary information with statistics in its report from RKM. The information is crucial for planning strategic initiatives and for providing health education to the public.

“We want to know what residents think about their healthcare options,” said Kim Justice, vice president of planning and operations. “We value their opinions and hope that anyone called by RKM will choose to participate in the survey.”

Pain meds an sent home.the doctor on call did ask if I wanted a cat scan this was like 5in the morning.I had to be on dialysasis by 10am so didn't really have time now I'm waking up this morning with the same pain.I feel nothing was done for me I was brought in by ambulance an kept waiting for 3 hours.they need to have atleast2doctors on call at all times so that people can be seen at a more reasonable time this would help out a lot so not a satisfied patient
