Hood River County Rated Fourth Healthiest In Oregon

Hood River County was rated the fourth healthiest county in Oregon in the 2022 County Health Rankings put together by the University of Wisconsin Population Institute.  Daron Ryan of the Hood River County Health Department outlined some of the reasons why the County rated so highly, including access to healthy foods, the large number of medical providers, and a high number of social groups to maintain connectivity.  She said areas for the County to work on include sexually transmitted infections, whose rates are on the rise.  Washington, Benton, and Clackamas counties were ranked the top three healthiest counties in Oregon.  Sherman County was 16th and Wasco County 17th.
