The Healthy Southern Illinois Delta Network (HSIDN) is a grassroots effort established to build consensus around the health needs of residents in southernmost Illinois.
The Network brings together local health departments, area health centers, hospitals and others interested in improving the health of their communities. Members work together to support healthy communities in the lower fifteen counties in Illinois.
HSIDN members include Southern Illinois Healthcare, the Center for Rural Health and Social Service Development and the area’s six health departments covering a fifteen county region. Regional efforts are coordinated by the steering committee and implemented at the local level through healthy community coalitions. Coalition members and action teams engage their own communities to conduct activities and advance the overall mission of the HSIDN.
The Network has grown into a strong collaborative effort of community organizations successfully leveraging resources to improve health in the Illinois delta region. The success of the network is a direct result of the regional planning approach supported by active engagement of those representatives interested in improving the health of their communities. This collective effort is supported and facilitated by Southern Illinois Healthcare, a non-profit hospital system with the support of SIU School of Medicine.
