The Creek County Health Department works closely and assists in facilitating local Community Partner Coalitions. This partnership allows for open lines of communications and collaborative planning and problem solving.
Creek County Healthcare Coalition
The Creek County Healthcare Coalition is a network of healthcare organizations and providers that are committed to strengthening the healthcare system for emergencies. The purpose of the Coalition is to develop a coordinated and effective medical and public health system response to all hazards through:
• Effective communications systems and protocols.
• Strategic acquisition and management of resources.
• Collaborative response planning.
Creek County Community Partnership
The Creek County Community Partnership, of which the Creek County Health Department is a member, is conducting a comprehensive community health assessment. It is doing this by using a strategic planning process called MAPP (Mobilizing to Action through Planning and Partnerships). MAPP has four separate health assessment tools that collects data from different aspects of the public health community.
The Creek County Community Partnership has completed a Community Themes and Strengths Assessment. This assessment is meant to collect data from the community at large about its perceptions concerning a variety of public health issues in the community.

The final assessment to be conducted is a Local Public Health System Assessment.

Results of this assessment will be made available to the public on this website as well as by other means.
