PHPP Strategic Plan is in the Works!


Public Health, Policy, and Planning (PHPP) is developing a strategic plan that will guide the priorities, goals, and strategies PHPP will use positively impact health for the next three years. PHPP will use data gathered from the SMC Health Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA). The CHNA provides information about a community’s current health status to prioritize local health concerns based on the data. Data highlights from this process will be available in late Spring 2023 and the full assessment will be available in Fall 2023.

From June 2023 – August 2023, SMC Health will be conducting a Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP). The CHIP will include various community groups and PHPP staff to identify health improvement priorities based on the CHNA data highlights.

Using the CHNA and CHIP information, PHPP will develop a PHPP strategic plan. The PHPP plan will include specific goals and measurable objectives for health improvement. The plan will be completed by early 2024.
