Positive Report For Huron Health Unit

Huron County | by Peter Jackson  
Report shows efficiency, over-performing in Health Unit programming.

Huron County is a healthy place to live, and the Health Unit continues to build on its success of last year.

The Health Unit's 2015 annual report has just been released, and focuses on four major areas.

The document concentrates on environmental health, infectious disease prevention and control, family health and community health.

Board of Health Chair Tyler Hessel tells The Beach News that little of that success would be possible without fiscal responsibility.

The Health Unit had a $7.3 million budget in 2015, with funding through provincial and County sources.

Hessel says the Health Unit is outperforming the guidelines set by itself and the province for program delivery.

He mentions that the Board of Health continues to look at possibly sharing certain programs with the Perth District Health Unit.

Talks of a possible merger involving the Huron and Perth Health Units have been on-again, off-again since 2014.

Hessel asks locals to contact the Health Unit if they identify a gap in service, or believe that existing public health services could be delivered more efficiently.
