A Message from the Fort HealthCare President & CEO
Fort HealthCare's services are tailored to meet the needs of your community. Each year, our Community Health Assessment includes a door-to-door survey that occurs throughout the service area. We also seek input from representatives of community agencies, school districts and area employers. The survey covers core issues, including access to healthcare, alcohol and tobacco use and other health-related behaviors, diet and nutrition, emotional and mental health, exercise and insurance coverage. The five most important issues uncovered in the most recent survey are:
– Diet and nutrition
– Exercise and physical activity
– Preventive care
– Access to healthcare
Our strategies for addressing these issues include keeping area residents active and physically fit, engaged with primary care, out of the hospital, safe in their community and well in their workplace. We believe in promoting early detection, prevention and wellness, and to offer better management of chronic disease when it does occur. Education is an important facet of our work at Fort HealthCare. The contents of this website is designed to inform you of the wide range of services, specialized care, and support available through Fort HealthCare. You can also learn more about many health-related issues by reviewing the most current health information.
We're committed to the health of our communities, and we're always here to listen, understand, and respond to your health care concerns. With your help, we can achieve our Vision to be the healthiest community in Wisconsin.
