Jefferson County Health Network
The Jefferson County Health Department along with other health stakeholders in Jefferson County have come together with a collective vision for improving community health. Jefferson County is rich in health resources to serve the varied needs of its diverse population.
Health providers in Jefferson County face several obstacles in collaboration. Collaborators have come to the tale showing the desire and commitment to break down silos and build systems of change. Through shared data and community insight JCHN landed on three pillars of strategic work; resource and referral systems, health literacy and provider retention. These separate task forces include members from different sectors including, but not limited to, clinical, dental, mental health, social services, education and emergency response.
Vision: To promote optimal community health; creating a community where residents are healthy, safe and have a high quality of life.
Mission: The goal of the Network is to foster community-wide solutions that lead to healthier, more proactive lives across the lifespan of county residents.
