County Health Rankings

Starting in 2010, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation along with the University of Wisconsin compiled an annual look at counties across the country ranking them in several categories of health, personal behaviors, education and jobs, and healthcare.

 

The data collected from this report in Thomas County has played an important role in looking at where improvements need to be made in our community. Some of the data collected has been used as a guide to tell us what we need to work on.

Healthy Communities Indicators

In an effort to help develop a one-stop-shop when learning about community health in Kansas, community partners from across the state have come together to develop a new website with health data. The intent of this website is to help hospitals, health departments, policy makers, community planners and members learn about issues, identify improvements and collaborate for positive change.

 

By visiting the Community Health Needs Assessment Toolbox, a collection of links and best tools and resources can be found. Data from this website, will be used to help develop a better picture of the overall health in Thomas County, as well as learning about what is going on in the community and where partnerships can be formed. 

 

You can learn more about this resource at Kansas Health Matters.
