Strategic Plan

The Clay County Public Health Center Board of Trustees took on the task of developing a strategic plan that would totally regenerate the focus and resources of the Health Center six years ago. During these six years, the focus has been on restructuring, building collaborative partners and realigning internal structures so that the Health Center will be prepared to address the issues and needs of the Community.

Revising & Updating the Plan

Today, the Board of Trustees along with the Health Center Leadership Team has embarked on revising and updating the strategic plan to reflect the current direction. The infrastructure decisions and realignment have occurred. Now we embark on the expansion of the focus to meet the following goals:
  • Base all planning on the National Public Health Performance Standards and the 10 Essential Public Health Services to assure maximum response from the Health Center and its community partners.
  • Utilize the Three Core Functions of Assurance, Assessment and Policy Development as guides to meet community needs.
  • Utilize the results from Vision North 2010-2015 and from our Community Health Assessment Data sets to create individual Community Health Improvement Plans to address the following Chronic Diseases and Conditions effecting our communities:
    • Accidents/Unintentional Injuries
    • Cancer
    • COPD
    • Diabetes
    • Heart Disease

Desired Outcome

The desired outcome from this process is that we are meeting our mission to deliver the essential public health services of prevention, promotion and protection to the communities of Clay County, and that our vision of empowering all people in Clay County to lead healthier lives will be fulfilled.
