2015 Good Government Awards: Colleen Chawla's Groundbreaking Health Care Services Master Plan
March 17, 2015

The 2015 Good Government Awards, held on March 11, recognized outstanding performances by managers working for the City and County of San Francisco. 

 

Colleen Chawla, Deputy Director of the Department of Public Health, led the effort to create the groundbreaking Health Care Services Master Plan (HCSMP) for the City and County of San Francisco. The first of its kind in the nation, the HCSMP allows policy makers to evaluate the impact of citywide health-promotion efforts, community planning and land use decisions on the health of citizens. With no clear blueprint for her work, Chawla engaged more than 100 San Francisco residents to gather community feedback to shape the plan. She also assembled a 41-member HCSMP Task Force charged with focusing on health care access among San Francisco’s vulnerable populations. Chawla is also responsible for the coordination of department- and city-wide efforts to plan for health care in San Francisco, as well as for health policy analysis and development.
