CJS Case Report: Minnesota’s PartnerSHIP 4 Health
PartnerSHIP 4 Health is a new community health board that governs the four local health departments serving Becker, Clay, Otter Tail and Wilkin Counties. Since its establishment, PartnerSHIP 4 Health has undertaken a four-county community health improvement planning process, developed sequential strategic plans and implemented a branding strategy. Four programs are now shared among all departments, with staffing models, policies and procedures designed by the involved staff. It is anticipated that more programs will be shared in the future as opportunities arise with staff turnover and new grants. For the complete story, read the Center’s 2018 CJS Case Report about the site.
