Community Health Assessments and Improvement Plans

In 2011, the DOH - Suwannee received grant funds from the Florida Department of Health to work on a community health improvement project. The Department partnered with Mary Taylor and the Youth Advocacy Partnership to complete a community health assessment and improvement plan. This collaborative effort involved representatives from the health professionals, community organizations, businesses, and concerned citizens. A comprehensive, county-wide Community Health Assessment using a nationally recognized approach, called MAPP (Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships) was completed over a six-month timeframe. The data from the collaborative community effort resulted in the 2011 Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP). This CHIP serves as a framework for health improvement in Suwannee County and includes strategic health issues and actions and goals to achieve improved health. The Community Health Improvement team welcomes input from our community. Please review the 2011 Community Health Assessment and Community Health Improvement plan at and provide feedback to the improvement team via this link.
