A group of community partners in Lewis County made up of Public Health & Social Services, United Way of Lewis County, Centralia College, Juvenile Court, Providence Centralia Hospital, Morton General Hospital, Valley View Health Centers, and CHOICE Regional Health Network has initiated a community-wide strategic planning process for improving the health of Lewis County.
This process will help identify and prioritize strategic issues and identify resources for addressing them.
The first step in this process was to conduct an assessment to provide a better understanding of the factors that contribute to the health of Lewis County. The assessment combines the results of almost 600 surveys with input for community leaders as well as statistical data.
After the community forum leaders, representing various groups will meet and prioritize the issues raised in the assessment. Work groups will be formed to address the top issues, and plans will be created to align and coordinate activities throughout the county.
