Florida Department of Health in Santa Rosa County

Milton, FL, 32570

8 a.m.–5 p.m.

Florida Department of Health in Escambia and Santa Rosa Counties work in collaboration with a number of nonprofit organizations to create, publish, share, and update each year, the Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA). This assessment shares key community health status indicators, important social and economic factors, and community resources identified through the community assessment and mobilizing model used. 

This group of organizations, now known as Achieve Healthy EscaRosa, worked during 2021 to survey residents from both counties to get an understanding of the perceptions and themes of health and wellness in the two counties.

The CHNA looks at the social and economic factors that affect health, like median household income and employment. The report identifies top causes of death and looks at factors that impact one portion of the population more significantly than others.

In addition to the CHNA, Achieve Healthy EscaRosa has partnered with the Haas Center at the University of West Florida and Achieve Escambia to create an online data dashboard. The dashboard is a free, easy-to-use tool that will allow users to understand how key factors result in quality-of-life for individuals and the community.

The Achieve Dashboard aggregates data elements across a broad range of issues related to the economy and quality-of-life in Escambia and Santa Rosa Counties. Indicators of education, health & social well-being, infrastructure, quality-of-place, and workforce & demographics are the focus of this dashboard. Funding partners are hopeful that citizens and organizations will utilize the dashboard to plan programs, align resources, and leverage new resources and opportunities to improve outcomes across indicators.

Guided by cross-sector leaders engaged in the work of the funding organization, the Achieve Dashboard is intended to supplement other existing data dashboards and will be updated routinely and improved to meet the growing and changing needs of our community.
