Community plan

Community health needs assessment

New Ulm Medical Center, along with local partners, conducted a community health needs assessment to create community improvement goals and detailed plans on how to achieve those goals. As a result of this assessment, New Ulm Medical Center will focus on making improvements in these key areas:

  1. Obesity - through education and increased physical activity opportunities
  2. Substance abuse - by supporting programs and providing education in the community
  3. Mental health - by improving access to mental health-related resources in the community and addressing stigma related to mental health
