Healthcare Committee

The Range Healthcare Committee is composed of regional healthcare leadership members, this group is exploring avenues to collaborate, cooperate and facilitate on healthcare issues common to our region. The group is actively sharing initiatives, recruitment and retention issues, training needs and certification limits that provide challenges to our healthcare communities. Developing regional healthcare initiatives based on regional healthcare conditions is also a priority. A healthcare subgroup has also been formed. The group is determining whether it is possible to consolidate all of the individual community healthcare assessments that are required of all healthcare facilities in the region into one regional report. There was a pilot project in Duluth which included assistance from St. Louis County, to conduct one report for the city of Duluth. This initiative would mirror that project. The group is also seeking to examine all of the individual existing health assessment reports to identify common medical conditions. A regional healthcare plan would then be developed to address the findings in our schools, communities and healthcare facilities.
