The North Central District Health Department leadership has redesigned and streamlined the district's mission and vision to incorporate a more population-based healthcare approach and better fit the direction of Kentucky’s new Public Health Transformation model.
The district’s new mission – Provide innovative, diverse and inclusive population-based public health as a leader through education, disease prevention, regulation adherence and communicable disease control – defines its purpose as it moves forward.
The mission statement describes the North Central District’s fundamental purpose and will help shape every decision we make. And it will help guide us as we strive to meet our vision – Optimal health for the communities of the North Central District – Henry, Shelby, Spencer and Trimble counties.”
Using the guiding principles of the mission statement, the North Central District will display its values:
- Collaboration in our communities.
- Accountability in Public Health.
- Respect in the workplace.
- Equity and inclusion in all we do.
- Service to others with integrity and compassion.
Following these values will help the community see how much the North Central District CARES for the population it’s here to serve.
