Health Department Releases Regional Health Assessment
Western U.P. Health Department has released an extensive health data report for use by health care and community planners, and a companion summary version for the general public. The full Western Upper Peninsula Regional Health Assessment and the 8-page Report to the Community are the culmination of a year-long effort to quantify and understand the health status and health care needs of people living in the five Western U.P. counties and neighboring Iron County, Wisconsin.
The health department conducted the project in partnership with health care providers serving Baraga, Gogebic, Houghton, Keweenaw and Ontonagon counties. The partners are hospital-based systems Aspirus Keweenaw, Aspirus Grand View, Aspirus Ontonagon Hospital, Baraga County Memorial Hospital, and Portage Health, along with behavioral health agencies Copper Country Community Mental Health Services, Gogebic County Community Mental Health Authority, and the Western U.P. Substance Abuse Services Coordinating Agency.
