Schuyler County Public Health has been named the Community Partner of the Year by Schuyler Hospital. 

At their Annual Community Meeting held on May 30th, Schuyler Hospital presented the award in recognition of helping the hospital achieve its mission.

Schuyler Hospital and Schuyler County Public Health partnered to produce the Hospital’s Community Service Plan and Public Health’s Community Health Improvement Plan, setting appropriate goals and implementing programs to address identified needs.

The partnership produced the Healthy Eating Active Living (HEAL) Schuyler to reduce obesity in children and adults.  HEAL Schuyler includes “Active Living Every Day” classes, the Schuyler Walks website for hiking trail maps and a list of area walks and runs, printed trail maps distributed throughout county, Choose Health to help restaurants and worksites identify healthier options, and a monthly newsletter.  

Public Health and the hospital meet monthly to discuss community health issues, and work collaboratively. They can call on other community partners as needed.

Currently, the two organizations are working together to bring back Schuyler County Strong Kids Safe Kids, this Fall as part of an overall Community Falls Fit Fest.
