2012 Lake County Public Health Assessment and Improvement Plan
In the spring of 2012, Lake County Public Health, St. Vincent General Hospital and Lake County Build a Generation formed a partnership to review the health
of our residents, better understand health trends in our county, and compile issues of concern. These partners convened a Lake County Public Health Improvement Plan Stakeholder Group, comprised of health leaders, elected officials, and citizens. Over the course of several meetings, this group reviewed the available county-level data and discussed the state of community health in Lake County. Ultimately, the group came up with key indicators of Lake County community health that both describe the overall health
of Lake County and focus attention and action on areas of greatest concern. This document provides a summary of these eight key
indicators—including our capacity to improve population-level health in these areas and a plan for doing so.
