About The Partnership

Mission

The Partnership for a Healthy Community (PFHC) is a community-driven partnership of public and private partners working together to address priority health issues in Peoria, Tazewell and Woodford Counties in Illinois.

Vision

Our Vision for the tri-county region will be a thriving community that is inclusive, diverse, and sustainable to ensure health equity and opportunity for well-being for all.

Values

  • Inclusive:  Open to everyone.
  • Diverse:  Understanding and respect of cultural differences enhances our community. Each resident has the opportunity to live their life to the fullest with equal opportunity for all.
  • Sustainable:  Engaged and committed community work that lasts over a prolonged period of time regardless of economic and social challenges.
  • Health Equity:  Everyone has a fair opportunity to attain their highest level of health regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, income, sexual orientation, neighborhood or other social condition. Achieving health equity requires eliminating gaps in health disparities between different social groups.
  • Health & Wellbeing:  A state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. Encompasses the full spectrum of health and well-being including: healthy behavior, access to quality clinical care, social and economic factors (education, employment, income, family and social support, community safety), and physical environment (air and water quality, housing and transit).
  • Knowledgeable:  Valid, reliable information is valued as part of the decision-making process.
  • Engaged/Involved:  A community where working collaboratively with others to address issues that affect their health and well-being, while actively building a sense of community is the norm.
  • Committed:  A community where quality health care is accessible to all residents, including the indigent and underserved, and is not taken for granted, but is valued with a focus on prevention and respect for our bodies.
  • Safe:  The community is committed to creating and supporting a safe environment.

Purpose

The Partnership for a Healthy Community (PFHC) serves as the local health improvement partnership for Peoria, Tazewell and Woodford Counties. Through partnership procedure and operation, the PFHC addresses priority health areas identified by the most current cycle of the local health improvement process. Priority health issues will be assessed at least every 5 years as part of a full community health improvement process.
