All of Burnett County and its residents will have optimal well-being.
Engage community partners and members to work collaboratively to promote the optimal well-being of Burnett County and its residents.
Since 2012, Burnett Medical Center, Burnett County Department of Health and Human Services-Public Health, and the St. Croix Tribal Health Clinic are required to conduct a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA). The goal of the CHNA, completed every 3 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 Healthy Burnett Coalition was formed in May 2013 to engage community partners in the health improvement process.
