Community Health Needs Assessment - Report on the Health of Wood County

Bowling Green (09/10/12: The members of the Wood County Health Partners are pleased to announce the completion and release of the 2012 Health Assessment. The Health Assessment was a multi-agency effort to assess current health status and the needs of the County. An open house will be held to release copies of the report and to highlight the results. The open house is scheduled for Tuesday, September 11th from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm at the Educational Service Center located at 1867 N. Research Drive, Bowling Green. Members of the public are welcome to attend.

This comprehensive Community Health Assessment is the result of a strong commitment by many dedicated community partners working together to improve the health and quality of life of Wood County residents. The health assessment provides a snapshot of Wood County, the state of Ohio and the nation. “This report will provide the basis for discussion and action, becoming the foundation for improving and promoting the health of our community” said Pam Butler, Health Commissioner.

The data will allow community stakeholders to write better grants, formulate strong strategic plans and answer a Call to Action. The aim of completing this project was to provide valuable information to assist community organizations and agencies to focus on wellness, improve the general health status, increase access to services and address unmet needs of the community. The results from this report may influence current courses of action and support new areas of interest within Wood County.

The major supporters of the project were the Wood County Health District and Wood County Hospital. The assessment was further enhanced by collaboration with the Wood County ADAMHS Board and the Wood County Educational Service Center. Many other Wood County agencies, organizations, schools and individuals provided input and direction for the project. The process was guided by the Healthy Communities Foundation of the Hospital Council of Northwest Ohio.

Copies of the report will be available online at www.co.wood.oh.us/healthdepartment following the release on September 11th.
