Community Health Assessment

Established in 1999, Healthy Lucas County performs a community health assessment every three years. The latest one, the 2022/2023 Lucas County Community Health Assessment, was released in December 2023. The assessment has data about Lucas County children, youth and adults. These are the presentation slides from the release event.

Health Improvement Plan

Healthy Lucas County developed and is implementing a three-year community health improvement plan that works to achieve health equity through strategies and action steps to improve the overall health and well-being of Lucas County residents of all ages. The 2021-2024 Lucas County Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) specifies four priority areas – mental health & addiction, chronic disease, maternal & infant health, and community conditions – each of which has two strategies. This Executive Summary provides an overview of the CHIP.

The CHIP is a long-term, systematic effort to address health issues among Lucas County residents based on findings of the 2019/2021 Lucas County Community Health Assessment and other data sources. It also supports and aligns with Ohio’s 2020-2022 State Health Improvement Plan.
