Washington County is a founding partner of Healthy Columbia Willamette. On this page, you'll find a wealth of information about how this collaboration among hospitals and health departments is working to improve the health of our community. You'll also find a "dashboard" that tells you at-a-glance how our community measures up on dozens of health factors (e.g., teen pregnancy rate, adults with diabetes, farmers' market density, and much more).
