Rooks County Health Services
“Health Care…Close to home”
Health Care….Close to home is driven by community commitment and dedication when you need it most. When you’re
sick or just want to stay well, don’t look further than your own back door.
The Rooks County Health/Wellness Coalition was formed as a result of a county-wide needs assessment conducted
by Kansas Rural Health Works. Four priorities were established through the series of public meetings:
- Priority 1 – Promote health, wellness, and chronic disease prevention.
- Priority 2 – Bolster economic development initiatives and promote economic opportunity for county residents.
- Priority 3 – Evaluate and enhance available elder care assistance.
- Priority 4 – Foster improved public perceptions of the sense of community and community-building throughout Rooks County.
