MISSION

Engage community partners and members to work collaboratively to promote the optimal well-being of Burnett County and its residents.

 

HISTORY

Healthy Burnett was formed in May, 2013, as a product of the Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) and Improvement Process Burnett Medical Center, Burnett County Department of Health and Human Services-Public Health, and the St. Croix Tribal Health Clinic started in 2012. The goal of the CHNA, completed every 3-5 years, is to identify the most significant health needs among Burnett County residents and to develop a community-wide plan to address the identified needs. Through the recent assessment, Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse was determined to be the single most significant health need. To address this need, the group Healthy Burnett was formed to engage community partners in the health improvement process.
