HealthCounts in Cowley County

The Health Department, William Newton Hospital, and other community partners have teamed up to conduct HealthCounts in Cowley County, a health & wellness survey for Cowley County residents.

Through this survey, community members can play a vital role in shaping the future health of the county. HealthCounts covers several important topics including public health, mental health, education, and others. This feedback This feedback is integral for improving health services to better serve the community.

Once finished with the survey, respondents will receive $10 in local Chamber Checks, which can be used at any local chamber of commerce member in Arkansas City or Winfield. Additionally, respondents will be entered into a Monday to Friday daily drawing for an additional $100 in Chamber Checks. These drawings will take place every day until the survey closes.

HealthCounts closes on April 30th, so community members are encouraged to complete it as soon as possible. The survey is completely anonymous, available in both English & Spanish, and only takes around 20 minutes to complete.
