Sangamon County Ranks At Bottom of Health and Wellness in Illinois


Despite having some of the best medical facilities in the state, Sangamon County ranks near the bottom among Illinois counties for overall health and wellness.

 

A new study suggests the disparity is linked directly to economic factors, including significant numbers of low-income households, lack of health insurance, and even difficulty in obtaining fresh and nutritious foods.

 

Sangamon County ranks second-best in the state in terms of clinical care… but in the category labeled “morbidity,” which measures overall physical and mental health, Sangamon is 95th out of 102 Illinois counties.
