2016-2018 Onondaga County Community Health Assessment and Improvement Plan
November 14, 2017

The Onondaga County Health Department is pleased to announce the publication of the enhanced 2016-2018 Onondaga County Community Health Assessment and Improvement Plan. The Community Health Assessment and Improvement Plan provides a complete overview of demographic and health indicator data for Onondaga County residents while also identifying current health challenges, determinants of health, and existing community assets and resources. The document also outlines a collaborative plan for addressing community health priorities. The 2016-2018 priority areas are:

  1. Preventing Chronic Disease and
  2. Promoting Mental Health and Preventing Substance Abuse.

This collaborative document was developed by the Onondaga County Health Department in partnership with Crouse Health, St. Joseph’s Health, and Upstate University Hospital.  Input was also received from numerous community partners and with the engagement of County residents through community surveys and focus groups.

“The Community Health Assessment and Improvement Plan establishes public health priorities and provides a road map for collaboratively addressing identified challenges” said Dr. Indu Gupta, Onondaga County Health Commissioner.  Dr. Gupta continued, “This effort would not have been possible without the support of local hospitals, numerous community agencies, and the feedback and engagement of community members.”

The revised 2016-2018 Onondaga County Community Health Assessment and Improvement Plan is available on the Onondaga County Health Department website at: http://www.ongov.net/health/documents/OnondagaCountyCHA-CHIP.pdf
