ABOUT

history

In 2014, Douglas County was struggling to adequately provide public health services to the community and a report was conducted in order to analyze the county’s best options.

The result of this report, and the hard work of public health leaders in the community, was the decentralization of public health from the county and the establishment of a 510(c)3 non-profit known as Douglas Public Health Network in the fall of 2015. Douglas Public Health Network (DPHN), operating as a consortium of both for profit business and non-profit organizations, is a new way to provide public health services. While the county retains public health authority, Douglas Public Health Network and its affiliated non-governmental organizations provide the services. The majority of services are provided directly by the participating organizations:

  • Umpqua Community Action Network (UCAN) took over the Women, Infant and Children’s program (WIC) and provides nurse visiting services.
  • Umpqua Community Health Center (UCHC) provides immunization services, women’s reproductive health, family planning and sexually transmitted disease (STD) and school based health services
  • ADAPT provides tobacco prevention services and school based mental health services

DPHN itself contracted with the county to take over the Communicable Disease and Emergency Preparedness programs. DPHN is also involved with specialized programs focusing on specific topics such as public health modernization, prescription drug overdose prevention, and oral health.

DPHN is managed by a board of directors with Dr. Bob Dannenhoffer serving as Executive Director/Public Health Administrator overseeing an eight person staff.
