CHIP - Community Health Improvement Partnership

Community Health Improvement Partnership (CHIP) is dedicated to building better health and wellness for Sarasota County through a dynamic collaboration of individuals, agencies, healthcare providers, and government.  DOH-Sarasota provides major financial and administrative support to this innovative community partnership.

CHIP does the following:

  • Engages citizens in taking responsibility for their personal health and the health of their communities.
  • Encourages focus and discussion on community health concerns across organizational, geographic, and demographic boundaries.
  • Facilitates an innovative, ongoing dialog among hospital CEOs and health department administrators from Sarasota, Charlotte and DeSoto counties, who meet quarterly to discuss and act on regional health issues.
  • Educates the public on how to become healthier, access medical care, or get insured.
  • Researches and publishes local data on health issues of concern to citizens and healthcare providers.
