Community Health Plan Overview

Healthy People Healthy Oneida County Community Health Plan 2017 – 2021

Healthy People Healthy Oneida County began in 1995 as a community wide initiative with the goal of establishing an ongoing process for identifying and addressing health needs in Oneida County.  This new plan is part of the ongoing planning process and commitment to our community.

The intent of the plan is to foster successful partnership of many facets of our community in order to improve the health of our community.  A Steering Committee and community assessment team representing a broad spectrum of Oneida County constituencies including business, education, government, health care, law enforcement, not-for-profit agencies, and citizens reviewed county and state health data in relationship to State of Wisconsin health priorities and national health objectives.
