The Comanche County Health Department is pleased to be among the first in the nation to receive newly established national public health department accreditation status through the Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB).  The accreditation process helps to ensure that the programs and services we provide are as responsive as possible to the needs of our community.  With accreditation, the Comanche County Health Department is demonstrating increased accountability and credibility to the public, funders, elected officials and partner organizations with which we work.  To receive accreditation, a health department must undergo a rigorous, multi-faceted, peer-reviewed process to ensure it meets or exceeds a set of quality standards and measures.  For more information please follow this link:  PHAB

Comanche County Health Deparment

Our Vision is “Creating a State of Health”.  Our Mission is “To protect and promote health, to prevent disease and injury, and to cultivate conditions by which Oklahomans can be healthy.”   We do this by monitoring the health of our community, identifying and responding to health threats, providing timely and accurate information, enforcing laws that protect health and providing quality services to prevent and control disease.  

Community Health Assessment/Community Health Improvement Plan

In the spring of 2010, Comanche County began a journey to improve the health of all residents throughout the County. Using surveys provided by various means, the Community Health Assessment (CHA) and the Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) were completed. As we continually monitor and update the goals identified by residents and other key stakeholders throughout the county as their primary health and environmental concerns, a diverse coalition of volunteers consisting of individuals, state and local government, universities, public schools, business’s, faith organizations and health care providers continuously collaborate to promote and provide a healthy environment.

In 2015, we again surveyed residents asking what are the greatest environmental and health challenges they face today. Although there are many, the top five equally important challenges identified by resident surveys are:

  • Obesity
  • Mental Health
  • Poverty
  • Violence and Crime
  • Substance Abuse (Tobacco, Alcohol, Drug)

CHIP is a plan for all Comanche County residents which include common community goals and key strategies to achieve the best possible outcomes. CHIP will be evaluated annually to assure access is available to live a healthy lifestyle and implemented strategies are showing improvement for the five areas selected.

Health begins at home with personal choices made by everyone each day. To make a healthy system change, it will take the entire community to incorporate health and wellness into policies and decisions. All residents are encouraged while reviewing this plan to make the decision to be part of a healthy lifestyle solution.
