The Otero County Healthcare Services Department is proud to announced its first Community Health Assessment!  Otero County adopted the CHA Sept. 10, 2020.

We partnered with The Counseling Center, the Otero County Community Health Council, and other community members, groups, organizations, and local governments to collaboratively improve our community health through focused and coordinated efforts. These efforts are meant to change the underlying factors that affect the community's health, make healthier choices easier, improve access to care, and provide everyone with a fair opportunity to achieve their full health potential. It is about taking on the most significant health challenges the community faces - together.
