Every year, the Randolph County Health Department submits an Annual Report to the Board of Health. This document includes important information and statistics on each program area within the Health Department.
Every three years local public health agencies throughout North Carolina conduct a comprehensive Community Health Assessment. The assessment process is coordinated by the local health department, with support from the Healthy Carolinians partnership, as well as many local agencies, businesses and community members. The purpose of the community health assessment is to:
Evaluate the health status of each county in relation to the State's health objectives as well as peer counties
Identify and prioritize health issues that may pose a threat to the health of the community
Develop strategies to address priority community health concerns
Every four years, local health departments across the state are involved in the North Carolina Local Health Department Accreditation Process. Part of the Accreditation process requires that each health department develop a Strategic Plan. A Strategic Plan is a disciplined process aimed at producing fundamental decisions and actions that will shape and guide what an organization is, what it does, and why it does what it does.
