Every five years, the Douglas County Department of Health and Human Services, along with many organizations throughout the county, conduct a county-wide Community Health Assessment (CHA). The purpose of the CHA is to evaluate the current status of health in Douglas County. CHA data will be used to identify goals for improvement over the next five years and to develop a working plan for the county to achieve these goals. This plan is called the Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP).
The Community Health Assessment (CHA) Steering Committee collaborated to develop a community health survey in 2016. The full survey results can be viewed here. A summary of the survey results is available here. The full Community Health Assessment document including local and statewide health related data will be available soon.
