Local health departments are required to regularly and systematically collect, assemble, analyze, and make available information on the health of their community. In the beginning of 2015, the Florence County Health Department completed a new Community Health Assessment (CHA) and Commmunity Health Improvement Plan (CHIP).
In November of 2017 The Florence County Health Department released the Access to Health Care in Florence County Report. Please clink on 2017 Report link to view the report.
Through the CHA/CHIP process, the department collaborated with partners representing diverse viewpoints. Working together, we identified Alcohol & Drug Abuse and Mental Health as top health concerns for our community. A coalition was formed to work toward reducing substance abuse and increasing education and treatment options in our area.
