The Big Bend Health Council is a non-profit health planning organization serving Bay, Calhoun, Franklin, Gadsden, Gulf, Holmes, Jackson, Jefferson, Leon, Liberty, Madison, Taylor, Wakulla, and Washington counties in Florida since 1969. 

The role of the Big Bend Health Council is to improve the health and well-being of the residents in its service area through collaborative planning, advocacy, and education. The Council works with local health care providers, government agencies, and community organizations to identify health needs and develop strategies to address them.

Some of the services provided by the Big Bend Health Council include:

  • Health planning and needs assessment

  • Health education and outreach

  • Access to healthcare resources and information

  • Support for local health initiatives and programs

  • Advocacy for policies and programs that promote health and wellness

The Council also serves as a regional health information center, collecting and analyzing data on health trends, outcomes, and disparities in the Big Bend region. This information is used to inform health planning efforts and support evidence-based decision making in the community.


The Council is governed by twenty-one citizens appointed by the fourteen county commissions of the service area.
