New national study ranks St. Charles County one of the healthiest counties in Missouri

 has again been ranked one of the healthiest counties in Missouri based on a 2011 national study by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute. This year’s County Health Rankings Report placed St. Charles County No. 1 in Health Factors and No. 3 in Health Outcomes out of 114 Missouri Counties.

The top five Missouri regions for Health Factors were St. Charles County (No. 1), Boone County (No. 2), Nodaway County (No. 3), St. Louis County (No. 4) and Platte County (No. 5).

The state’s top five regions for Health Outcomes were Christian County (No. 1), Platte County (No. 2), St. Charles County (No. 3), Johnson County (No. 4) and Atchison County (No. 5).

“The continued success in St. Charles County’s health rankings is attributable in a large part to the exceptional hospital systems we have in place thanks to SSM, BJC and St. Luke’s. At the same time, eating right, exercising, getting preventive care — that’s what people have to do to stay healthy,” said Greg Prestemon, president and chief executive officer for the Economic Development Center of St. Charles County (EDC).

This report, along with many other factors, is why you should consider moving into St Charles County MO when relocating to the Greater St. Louis Metro area. 

If you are a business owner thinking of moving your business to the Midwest then let me suggest that you consider moving into St Charles County.  Not simply because of the wonderful Health ranking but there is a great workforce here to help you grow your business.
