  11. Community Health Services Network of Health Districts & Local Health Departments 11

  12. Community Health Services • 134 cities and counties are organized into 35 Health Districts • District boundaries usually follow planning districts and include as few as 1 and up to 10 cities and/or counties • There is at least one service delivery site in every city and county • Services vary among localities within a district and between districts based on local needs, funding, and private sector capacity 12

  13. Alternatives for LHD Operation • Locality may enter into a contract with VDH to operate (130 of 134 localities) • Administer their LHD under contact to VDH (4 of 134 localities) • Operate an independent LHD with no state funding (no locality has chosen this option) 13

  14. Philosophy Behind Local Health Districts (LHDs) in VA • LHDs are a partnership between state and local governments • LHDs work closely with private sector health care providers and systems • Array of LHD services varies based on local need • Preserve flexibility for LHDs on “how” to improve community health while assuring compliance with policy, regulation, and law • Partnership is the key 14

  15. Strengths of Virginia’s Public Health System • Local health districts in every city and county that provides basic public health services • Joint state and local funding of local health districts • Interdisciplinary management of districts • Flexibility to adapt to local needs • Public-private partnerships to improve health 15

  16. Local Health District Services • Services provided in every LHD include communicable disease control, family planning, inspection of public establishments that serve food, permitting of onsite sewage disposal and well construction, emergency preparedness and response. • Limited number of districts provide pharmacy, lab, and general medical services 16

  17. Service Delivery Models • Most districts have more than one of the following models depending on service and community capacity:  LHD staff provide services directly to clients  LHD provides services with individual provider contracts or through agreements with non-profits  LHD provides initial service then hand-off to private sector  LHD collaborates with private sector to assure service 17

  18. Evolution of Modern Public Health System • Prior to the creation of the existing system, all parts of Virginia did not have access to basic public health services throughout the state, including control of communicable diseases and immunizations • Cities tended to have more established, better funded public health services • Rural areas had a limited tax base and could not afford to establish more comprehensive public health services 18
