Established in 1999, Healthy Lucas County performs a community health assessment every three years. Here are links to the most recent assessments:
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.
