The assessment is required every three years under new health care legislation, according to an EOMC press release.
Community input is needed to ensure the success of the project, which will run from October into December, the release said.
The meetings will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.Â on the dates listed below. The first meeting will provide a more in-depth overview of what will occur during the process.

It's finally here â€” the 2013 LeFlore County Fast-Pitch Softball Tournament, which is taking place this year in Panama.
For the first time in four years (three of those since I've been here), the field for the title would appear to be wide open.
Poteau is the favorite, but may not have the cakewalk it has had in dominating the field for the last four years â€” and yes, that's a credit to the six seniors who graduated last spring, who never lost a fast-pitch county tournament game in their four years.
KIOWA â€” The Talihina Lady Golden Tigers softball team finished in third place at the Kiowa Tournament on Saturday.
The Lady Golden Tigers beat Wilburton 6-3 and Hartshorne â€” which opened the tournament by beating Talihina 5-4 Thursday afternoon â€” by a score of 8-1.
However, the Lady Golden Tigers fell to the Buffalo Valley Lady Buffaloes 5-0 in the loser's-bracket final to end up third.
WISTER â€” The Leflore Savages baseball team got one of its biggest wins in a while as they run ruled the Wister Wildcats 16-4 in five innings Thursday afternoon.
After the Wildcats took a 4-2 lead after an inning, the Savages went to work with a six-run second inning for an 8-4 lead. A five-run fifth inning put the game into run-rule status.
Oktaha 10, Cameron 4: In Cameron, trailing 2-1 after an inning, the Tigers erupted for five runs in the second innnig to take the lead for good at 7-2 after two innings.
The Pansy Kidd Middle School football teams split their home openers with McAlester on Thursday at Costner Stadium.
The eighth-graders rallied in the second half to down McAlester 14-8, but the Buffaloes downed the Raiders in the seventh-grade game 14-0.
