The vision and work of DCHI are grounded in the Triple Aim of improving health, health care and the patient experience, and reducing the growth in per capital health care cost in Delaware, plus one ─ improving the provider experience.

As the lead agency for the roll out of the first Healthy Neighborhood in Sussex County, The Sussex County Health Coalition is focused on building a “Culture of Health” for all our citizens. Through our partnership with Healthier Sussex County Task Force and DCHI, we have been able to develop an action plan with a set of tangible measurements to help our entire county. This community plan is a collective impact framework using the “Social Ecological Theory of Change” to foster this work, in creating a culture of health. Sussex County’s Culture of Health is broken into four interconnected action areas that we are aligning with the current community strategies.

These action areas are:

  • Making heath a shared value
  • Fostering cross-sector collaboration to improve wellbeing
  • Creating healthier, more equitable communities
  • Strengthen integration of health services and systems

The Sussex County Health Coalition exists to engage the entire community in collaborative, family-focused efforts to improve the health of children, youth and families in Sussex County. Together, we can make Sussex County the leading Healthy Community in Delaware and a driving force for Health Care Transformation locally and statewide. I know we will face challenges but together we can innovate and attain what we envision for ourselves, each other and our community.
