Community Health Assessment
Cleveland County began working on the update for our second iteration of the Community Health Improvement Plan in the Spring of 2015 using the Mobilizing for Action Through Planning and Partnerships (MAPP) model. The goal of this process was to formally assess the health status of the county in a comprehensive way, and solidify a formal approach for community health improvement efforts.

Public input and comments are welcome!  Please contact Shelagh Hadden at  shelaghh@health.ok.gov

Access to Care
In 2013, the Cleveland County Health Department began collaborating with community partners to address existing barriers to accessing health care services in Cleveland County. The process began with an assessment of health care access which was conducted during April 2013 in communities throughout the county. A workgroup was formed and are currently prioritizing those issues to be addressed.

The Cleveland County Access to Healthcare assessment results are now available.
