Community Health Improvement Plans

Community Health Improvement Plans (CHIPs) are community roadmaps that lay out  long-term, strategic processes addressing public health issues based on the results of the community health assessments. Community health improvement planning is a community process that involves many different community members and partners. Custer Health went through two separate processes. A process was conducted for Mercer and Oliver Counties and then for Grant, Morton, and Sioux Counties. Both CHIPs highlighted the following three priorities as current issues that need to be addressed:

  1. Obesity
  2. Mental Health--Alcohol Abuse
  3. Tobacco Use

The two reports can be viewed below:
