Healthier Sussex County

A collaborative effort of community members, community resources and area hospitals has begun in Sussex County, Delaware. Our mission is to make Sussex County one of the healthiest in the nation by addressing health issues and working toward optimal health.

Beebe Healthcare, Bayhealth - Milford, Nanticoke Health Services and several other health and community organizations have joined together to support all Sussex County residents in our quest to achieve better health.

The following objectives have been set to date:

  • To identify and address health disparities
  • To identify and address health education needs
  • To positively impact health behavior

Two major Healthier Sussex County initiatives have been set for this year. The primary goals include increasing the number of residents in Sussex County who receive diabetes testing and self-management education, and to increase compliance with recommended breast cancer screenings among women in the county.

More information regarding the diabetes testing and self-management education may be found here.
