Community Wellness

The role of community relations at Independence Health System (IHS) is to represent the health system in the community. IHS gauges community need through methods such as community-wide surveys. To see the results of the most recent Community Health Needs Assessment, click here. Community Relations also works hand in hand with local organizations and chambers to provide the most up-to- date information on new services and facilities available to the community.

Encompassing Community Needs

Independence Health System offers classes, events, seminars, health talks and support groups designed to help people in local communities keep up-to-date on advances in medicine and to have a better understanding of health and wellness. IHS events are educational, but better yet, they can be fun.
