Ridgeview would like to acknowledge all of the partners previously referenced including all the participants of the two community forums. Additionally, Ridgeview would like to thank the citizens of Anderson County who took the time to complete the referenced surveys and share with us their impressions of the overall health needs of Anderson County.

I also want to recognize the willingness of Methodist Medical Center and Covenant Health to partner with Ridgeview on this CHNA. This collaborative effort avoided duplication and strengthened what already is a strong relationship to better serve the needs of Anderson County.

Lastly, I want to thank the Board of Directors of Ridgeview for their involvement in this process and especially for their strong support in endorsing the action plans developed.
