St. Rose Dominican and Community Partners Launch Healthy Website

Multiethnic Group of People Holding Alphabet To Form Health

The Southern Nevada Health District, with the support of community partners including Dignity Health – St. Rose Dominican, the UNLV School of Nursing, UNLV School of Community Health Sciences, University of Nevada School of Medicine, and United Way of Southern Nevada, have launched the Healthy Southern Nevada website. This first-of-its-kind website is a source of community health information and population data available to planners, policy makers, and community members to use as a tool for conducting community assessments, strategic planning and community health improvement and advocacy activities. The website can be found at: http://www.HealthySouthernNevada.org.

The Healthy Southern Nevada website features a number of tools for users. The Find Health Data section allows the user to view more than 100 economic, social and health indicators for Clark County. The Promising Practices section is a collection of documented approaches to improving community health and quality of life from around the country. Additional tools can assist in generating reports, indexing socioeconomic needs, comparing health indicators, and finding health disparities.

“Dignity Health – St. Rose Dominican is excited to be a part of this innovative, collaborative approach to public health,” said Holly Lyman, Director of WomensCare and Community Outreach for St. Rose. “This new tool will be very beneficial for those that want to better the health of all Nevadans, and we’re thrilled to be a part of this project.

This website is also integral to the health district’s current efforts to complete a Community Health Assessment and Community Health Improvement Plan as part of the Public Health Accreditation process. In addition, this information is intended to be a resource for all interested audiences, including but not limited to hospitals and health care providers, other public health agencies, health coalitions, non-profits, city planners, policy makers, educators, local service providers and students.

Additional HealthySouthernNevada.org partners include the American Heart Association, Center for Progressive Policy and Practice, LLC, Clark County Social Service, Clark County School District, Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce, March of Dimes and Nevada HAND.
