McHenry County ranked in top 10% for overall health
To us, it’s hardly a newsflash that McHenry County is an awesome place to live, play, and work. But if it were ever a secret, the secret is out.
U.S. News & World Report has ranked us in the top 10% in its fourth annual Healthiest Communities rankings. The media company partnered with the Aetna Foundation, a philanthropic affiliate of CVS Health, to survey more than 3,000 communities nationwide.
The rankings were calculated by 84 individual metrics spread across 10 categories: population health, equity, education, economy, housing, food and nutrition, environment, public safety, community vitality, and infrastructure. McHenry County’s highest scores were for its economy, at 80 percent, and public safety, which was ranked at 75 percent.
A lot of factors go into determining a community’s overall health, and from its great schools and safe communities to our ongoing economic rebound from COVID-19 and our wonderful businesses and open spaces, McHenry County has a lot going for it. Thanks goes to U.S. News and the Aetna Foundation for seeing that!
