Kitsap Community Health Priorities
KCHP was initiated by a three-member “Sponsor Group”, comprised of the Kitsap Public Health District, Harrison Medical Center and United Way. In 2014, the Sponsor Group was expanded to include the Kitsap Community Foundation and Kitsap County Department of Human Services. In 2019, it was reconfigured into a Steering Committee and includes CHI Franciscan/Harrison Medical Center, Holly Ridge, Kaiser Permanente, Kitsap Community Foundation; Kitsap Community Resources; Kitsap County Human Services Department; Kitsap Mental Health Services; Kitsap Public Health District; Olympic Educational Services District; Peninsula Community Health Services; Suquamish Tribe; and United Way.
WHAT IS "KCHP"?
Kitsap Community Health Priorities (KCHP) is Kitsap County's health improvement process. Since 2011, every 3-5 years, the Kitsap community comes together to review data, identify issues of concern and set community health priorities for collective action. Every year, Kitsap partners work together to address those community health priorities.
