Together: Building a Stronger LDH and a Healthier Louisiana, our business plan for state fiscal year (FY) 2022 (July 1, 2021-June 30, 2022), defines how the Louisiana Department of Health (LDH) will measurably improve its programs, services, and outcomes in the upcoming year.
Teamwork is at the core of who we are as Louisianans and it’s at the heart of what we do for the more than 4.6 million people we as the Louisiana Department of Health (LDH) are privileged to serve. So, it is fitting that LDH’s first business plan in nearly a decade is titled Together: Building a Stronger LDH and a Healthier Louisiana. This ambitious plan is a blueprint for specific, measurable initiatives that builds upon our foundations while setting new goals, being open to change, and seeking to be progressive and better, every day.
Through the end of Fiscal Year 2022, our progress will be carried out and measured through 4 major commitments aimed at:
- Improving the health and well-being of Louisianans with an emphasis on prevention
- Reshaping the #TeamLDH work culture
- Enhancing customer service, partnerships, and community relations
- Being transparent, accountable, and compliant with state and federal regulations
Together, we will fulfill these commitments through 17 initiatives consisting of 42 goals designed to drive us forward as a more efficient, effective, and responsive state agency. Our goals will enhance the services we provide to the people of Louisiana, and strengthen the fabric of #TeamLDH and our partnerships with community leaders and public universities, all while striving to be the best steward of public resources possible.
At the end of FY22, LDH will provide a report detailing our achievements, lessons learned, and opportunities for further improvement. While unforeseen challenges will undoubtedly arise throughout the year, especially as we work urgently to end a pandemic, having our priorities and goals clearly defined in this business plan will help us maintain our focus and commitment to achieving them.
