2020 - 2022 Community health improvement plan

The Huron County Health Partners (HCHP) are proud to present the 2020-2022 Huron County Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP).  The plan focuses on the health of Huron County and creates strategies for the community’s future health needs.

In 2020, the Huron County Health Partners began the process through the Community Health Assessment (CHA). The assessment was administered county-wide and collected primary health data directly from adults, youth, and focus groups of community members and leaders. Secondary data from outside sources was also included in the assessment. The full 2020 Huron County CHA is available for the public to view on Huron County Public Health’s website at www.huroncohealth.com/huron-county-health-partners or by clicking here.

From the data collected from the CHA and supporting assessments, the HCHP Steering Committee identified Huron County’s top priority areas to address as:

  1. Mental Health and Substance Use;

  2. Access to Services; and

  3. Chronic Disease.

Objectives and activities have been selected with the aim to improve the community in these priority areas. These objectives and activities are outlined in the CHIP. Although the release of the CHIP was delayed due to the Partners’ response to COVID-19, the hope of the Health Partners still remains that the CHIP will help focus community resources on these areas and bring health improvement to the forefront of community discussions.

The HCHP Steering Committee is led by representatives of Fisher-Titus, Firelands Counseling & Recovery Services of Huron County – Norwalk, the Huron County Board of Mental Health and Addiction Services, Huron County Public Health, and Mercy Health – Willard Hospital.
