Community Health Efforts

The Cleveland County Health Department is continually working to promote and improve the health of our community. We do this by monitoring the health of our community, identifying and responding to health threats, providing timely and accurate information to the public and our partners, enforcing laws that protect health and providing quality services to prevent and control disease.



The community health assessment is a collaborative process of collecting and analyzing data and information for use in educating and mobilizing communities, developing priorities, garnering resources, and planning actions to improve the population's health.

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  


2015 Cleveland County Health Assessment

Once the assessment phase was complete, organizers used the data to select priority areas for health improvement: Obesity Reduction, Tobacco Use Prevention, and Children’s Health. The Cleveland County Health Improvement Plan (PDF, 1.7MB) is the culmination of that work, and provides the foundation for planning, implementation, and evaluation of strategies to reach our objectives. Workgroups for each priority area meet regularly. Community participation in these workgroups is welcome. To volunteer see information below.

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.
