The Perry County Health Department is looking for community input.
The Health Department is conducting a community survey to help form the local organization’s strategic plan.
Every several years, health departments complete a Community Health Assessment and Strategic Plan. This strategic plan will help define the Health Department’s priorities and direction over the next three to five years around carrying out the foundational public health services. A strategic plan outlines the mission, vision, and core values of the department and guides decision-making on allocation of resources. This plan sets forth what the health department plans to achieve internally, how it will achieve these goals, and identifies measurable objectives so it knows when it has achieved goals.
“The strategic plan is extremely important as it helps guide internal goals and objectives of the health department for the next 3-5 years.,” Health Department Director Liz House said.
Focus groups have been completed with the Health Department Board of Trustees, staff, and community leaders and partners.
Now it is the communities turn to provide their input.
