The 2022-2024 Health and Human Services Strategic Plan articulates our department’s four over-arching priorities over the next three years. Each priority comes with a set of objectives and strategies—a set of actions or projects to bring priorities to life.
The development of this strategic plan was collaborative and included input and guidance from HHS leadership and staff, community-based partners, local and county government agencies, elected officials, and others. We will use the direction in the plan to carry forward our long-term commitment to institutional improvement, build on lessons and opportunities, and further fulfill our role as a service provider, community partner, community educator, and catalyst for a healthier Placer.

2023 saw the department continue manage complex change processes, from navigating the end of pandemic-era benefits and Medicaid redetermination; to shifting to a new electronic health record system for behavioral health; to preparing to enter the new HHS Center in Auburn in early 2024, among others. Many of the department’s accomplishments this year, aligned to our strategic plan priorities, are outlined in the 2023 Annual Review.
2022 saw the department leverage lessons from the pandemic to expand our impact and reach while navigating new challenges, from a massive transition to a new and simpler benefits system for community members, to responding to the sheltering, resource, and information needs of residents affected by the Mosquito Fire. As the year comes to an end, we are listing key Strategic Plan accomplishments in the 2022 Annual Review.
As part of our commitment to delivering cutting-edge services, Placer County HHS underwent a strategic planning process in 2018-19, incorporating the perspectives of a wide range of stakeholders. The result was our 2019-2021 Strategic Plan: “Building a Healthier Community Together.” Explore the full plan, or read a summary hereHHS Strategic Plan I Executive SummaryHHS Strategic Plan I Executive Summary.
