Mission Statement

The Winnebago Public Health nursing Program functions to promote health and to prevent disease and disability for individuals, families and the Winnebago Community, through interventions which assist in the creation of conditions in which people can be healthy.

The Public Health Nursing program works within this mission to:

  • Promote the health of families and individuals in the Winnebago community.
  • Identify subpopulations, families and individuals at risk for illness, injury disability or premature death.
  • To provide culturally appropriate health education and interventions.

The patient care component of Public Health Nursing Program consists of six Public Health Nurses and one outreach worker. Each PHN works with a specific population to provide case management services, conduct home visits and provide health education.
