2023 SOTCH Report

A State of the County Health Report (SOTCH) is a state report that is required for accreditation. Every year that there is not a community health needs assessment (CHNA), counties must submit a SOTCH. The purpose of the SOTCH is to inform the state and the community about the progress that has been made since the CHNA.
