Hales Corners Health Department

The mission of the Hales Corners Health Department is to improve and protect the health of the community, assure optimum health and wellness, prevent disease, injury and disability, and prepare for new health threats.

To create an environment dedicated to optimizing the health and well-being of all members of the community through services based on education, promotion, prevention and preparedness.

In 2020, The Health Department began the process of a creating a “Community Health Assessment” (CHA) by gathering information from Residents of Hales Corners. Based on feedback from the community, our next step was to meet with residents to discuss the data provided; The intention was to help brainstorm the development of an improvement plan for each area of concern which was a success! The residents were able to help us to come up with different ideas for activities, programs and events can be created for Hales Corners, by working together in the following focus groups:

 Healthy Aging
Improving Emotional Well-Being
Promoting Healthy
Behaviors to Prevent Chronic Disease
Safe and Strong Community

 We look forward to continuing to find ways to serve our residents in our community!
