Collier is second-healthiest county in Florida for 5th year in a row

Collier County is the second-healthiest county in Florida for the fifth year in a row, according to new rankings released Wednesday by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

The healthiest among Florida’s 67 counties is St. John’s County — home to the city of St. Augustine. St. John’s has held the title of the healthiest county since 2014.

Lee County came in 11th healthiest, a move up from 12th place last year and a steady improvement from coming in 20th place in 2015.

This is the ninth year that the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has conducted annual county health rankings across the United States, where communities view their standing as a badge of honor or a call to action. The foundation conducts the annual assessment with the University of Wisconsin Public Health Institute.
