 From Cook County Public Health and Human Services - June 8, 2021

In order to allow additional time for county residents to complete the Assessing Access to Health Care Services survey, and provide an opportunity for submission of paper surveys, Cook County Public Health and Human Services has extended the deadline for the survey to Saturday, June 12

Public Health and Human Services, in partnership with the North Shore Health Care Foundation, launched an online survey in May with the goal of assessing transportation barriers to health care for county residents.


Public Health and Human Services is asking county residents who have not yet taken the survey to do so and to encourage others to do so as well.

To complete the survey:

·       Click on the following link:

·       Paper surveys and drop boxes will be made available at the following locations in the coming days: Grand Portage Trading Post, Clearview General Store, and the Grand Marais Library.  You may also mail completed surveys to Cook County PHHS, 411 W. Second Street, Grand Marais, MN  55604

·       If you have feedback that you would like to share, but do not feel comfortable completing a digital survey, please contact the project liaison, Sarah McLeod, at 218-231-1356 or send an email to [email protected] to set up a telephone interview or request a paper survey.

The survey aims to collect comprehensive feedback from residents who have traveled for health care services both within and outside of Cook County. Any person with experience in accessing health care services is asked to respond. This includes not just people who have received services from PHHS, but anyone who has needed to travel to access health care services.
