Strategic Planning Facilitation Project
The Office of Performance Improvement (OPI) from the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) issued an application for a Strategic Planning Facilitation Project in 2012. The goal of the project was to help facilitate a strategic planning process with at least 8 local or tribal health departments. GCHHS applied and were chosen to receive technical assistance from trained staff. The technical assistance provided by MDH was funded to work only with local and tribal health departments. This strategic plan will link to the full GCHHS strategic plan in the future. GCHHS implemented a strategic planning team for the Public Health Division that met from June through November of 2012. As a result, 3 priority goals were chosen and implementation of an action plan has begun. The Strategic Plan Report 2012 - 2015 provides a comprehensive picture of the strategic planning process and includes the broad goals and objectives.
