Health & Human Services
Creating a healthy community depends on three key factors – the adoption of healthy behaviors by county residents, the availability and quality of the health care services that those residents receive, and the physical environment in which those individuals live, work and play. The County plays an important role in all three aspects. It educates and encourages residents to follow practices that lead to better health. It also provides direct care to many residents – at its facilities and through contracts with other organizations. Finally, Fulton County has a responsibility to deliver safe drinking water and wastewater services, ensure that residences and businesses are maintained in a manner that does not compromise public health, and monitor food establishments to make sure that they are operated consistent with healthy practices.
Performance Dashboards and Initiatives
Strategic performance measures track activities which often extend beyond the power of one department or even the county government to affect on its own, but we believe improvements can be made in these areas through cooperation between departments and through partnerships with other government agencies, non-profits and the private sector.

Department performance measures are specific to county departments and are designed to track performance for the programs and services provided by each department. Departments set annual performance goals and report quarterly on their progress toward those goals. View dashboard
Strategic initiatives are major undertakings often involving multiple departments and are aimed at meeting strategic objectives. This section provides information on County's current year initiatives under the Health and Human Service priority area as well as accomplishments related to initiatives from last year.
