Local Public Health System Assessment

Florida Department of Health in Palm Beach County

The Florida Department of Health in Palm Beach County (DOH-Palm Beach), in partnership with the Health Care District of Palm Beach County (HCD), undertook an initiative to conduct an assessment of the public health system in Palm Beach County.

This Local Public Health System Assessment (LPHSA) is the first step in a larger comprehensive community health needs assessment occurring within the county. The Health Council of Southeast Florida (HCSEF) was retained to assist with the facilitation of the LPHSA process of gathering and analyzing information from community partners.

This report is developed from the qualitative, primary data obtained directly from internal and external community stakeholders. These stakeholders represent a broad variety of agencies, providers, and community members, which were identified and engaged by DOH-Palm Beach and HCD, in collaboration with HCSEF, for this assessment process.
