"Planning Healthy Ramsey” is a multi-phased effort by Saint Paul – Ramsey County Public Health to partner with community members to assess, prioritize, develop and implement plans to focus resources for improved health in Ramsey County. Our department will share documents and information with the community as we move through this process. The end result of this process will be the creation of a Community Health Improvement Plan for County stakeholders, and strategic and quality improvement plans for Saint Paul – Ramsey County Public Health.

Community Health Concerns Survey
As part of its assessment of local community health concerns, Saint Paul – Ramsey County Public Health conducted a survey in March and April 2013 of individuals who live or work in Ramsey County. The survey asked the public’s opinions on a range of community health issues such as alcohol and tobacco use, access to medical and dental services, infectious diseases, the health of babies and children, and environmental issues. Results: Top 10 Concerns
Community Health Improvement Planning Committee (CHIPC)
The Saint Paul – Ramsey County Community Health Improvement Planning Committee (CHIPC) has been convened to review community health assessment data, prioritize the County’s top health concerns and develop action steps in the form of a Community Health Improvement Plan. CHIPC is comprised of members of the department’s Community Health Services Advisory Committee (CHSAC) and other community members.
CHIPC members were provided with a notebook of materials that helped to create a common foundation of knowledge on which to base discussion and decisions. The materials contained in that notebook are available through links on this webpage. In addition to the 2013 Ramsey County Community Health Assessment (see above), the notebook also contains the following (pdf): CHIPC Introduction | Healthy People 2020 framework | National Prevention Strategies overview (5.38 MB) | Healthy Minnesota 2020 framework
