Dear Parent,
Cook Children’s needs your help with the following confidential survey about children’s health in our area. Every three years, we conduct a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) to identify the children’s health needs in our community and develop solutions with community partners to address the most important issues. We need information from parents of children ages 0-17 in the following counties (Tarrant, Denton, Johnson, Hood, Parker, Wise, Grayson and Collin counties).

We will add your responses to this private survey to responses received from other parents. With information from parents throughout the region, we can identify the strengths and challenges to make our community the healthiest place to raise children. In addition to this survey, the CHNA includes a review of facts from government and other health organizations and we plan to ask community leaders for their views about children’s health. We will also use this information to track our progress over time and to help Cook Children’s, and other nonprofit organizations, governments and churches in our area better serve children and families. Your opinions and experiences are important, and can help us determine community needs to better serve our families.

We invite you to take a few minutes to complete this private survey in the next few days. It is a simple way that you can give back to your community and make our region an even better place to live. Your participation is needed even if you have never used Cook Children’s services. ETC will compile the survey results for Cook Children’s and we will announce the results to the community in the coming months.

If you have questions, please call Cook Children’s at (682) 885-7786 or send us an email at We appreciate your survey responses very much and we believe that the CHNA will provide valuable information to help Cook Children’s and other community groups improve the health of every child in our region through the prevention and treatment of illness, disease, and injury.
