Tri-County Health Network is conducting a survey to try and get a better understanding of community health needs in San Miguel County, Ouray County and the West End.

Lynn Borup is the executive director of Tri-County Health Network, a nonprofit network of medical providers on the Western Slope.

She says the purpose of the survey is to find out what people want out of their health care. Borup says the organization has several methods of getting the survey out to the community.
