Health Partners

Mission: To monitor and improve the health status of Sandusky County residents.

 

Vision: Healthy People living in Healthy Communities.

 

In 1993, Health Partners was formed with a group of Health Organization CEO’s in Sandusky County. The focus was to determine health needs and to work cooperatively to address those needs. Health Partners has evolved to include many community groups and organizations all dedicated to determining the true health needs of Sandusky County residents. Members contribute to the group to ensure the continued work of community health assessment.

 

In order to assure we have the best available data, comprehensive health assessments are conducted every four years. In 2010, Health Partners also initiated the first county-wide assessment in the nation of children ages 0-11. Health Partners has long understood the importance of looking at the needs of our most vulnerable population--our children. Data from this assessment and the most recent adult and youth assessment were compiled to release the first Sandusky County Complete Community Health Assessment (see link below).

  

Representatives of Health Partners meet the first Wednesday of every other month at 11:30am, at the Sandusky County Health Department.
