Saginaw County faces serious health challenges, ranking among the least healthy counties in Michigan. Our health “report card” reveals many of our challenges:

If COVID-19 has taught us anything, it’s that overall health plays a major role in how diseases impact a community. To prevent, mitigate and prepare for any future events, the BWell, Saginaw Partner Coalition is leading an initiative to build a healthier Saginaw…one that is more resilient so that, if or when we experience the next wave or disease, we experience less severe illness, lower hospitalization, and fewer deaths.

BWell, Saginaw shines a spotlight on three significant health issues facing the people who live, learn, and work in Saginaw County:

Health Equity Council

Infant & Maternal Health

Maternal & Child Health

Mental Health and

We encourage you to learn more, to start conversations in your organizations, businesses, churches, and neighborhoods, and to reach out to find ways to work together to improve the health of Saginaw County.

BWell, Saginaw Partner Coalition

These organizations work collaboratively to conduct a comprehensive community health assessment survey every three years. The partnership uses this data to create a relevant, data-driven community health improvement plan to address major priorities to improve health outcomes in Saginaw County.
