    Strategic Initiatives

    How will our department protect and improve the health of Pierce County?

    Our 2021-2024 Strategic Plan guides how we serve the residents of Pierce County.

    In 2020-2021, we created a 3-year bridge plan to guide our strategic priorities and align our investments with the next biennial budget. We streamlined our process as our staff respond to the ongoing racism and COVID-19 public health emergencies in Pierce County.

    Staff, board and partners developed 5 strategic initiatives that will focus our work for the next 3 years. We also refreshed our values. We added equity because of its continuing importance to our work and our community. Our vision, mission and priorities remain constant.

    Now, we’re planning for a 6-year 2024-2029 Strategic Plan. This strategy will guide us through recovery and align with 3 biennial budgets.
