How does Washoe County rank on health outcomes? 6 quick takeaways

Washoe County dropped a notch from second to third in statewide rankings for overall health outcomes.

This comes from an annual County Rankings and Roadmaps report announced Wednesday by the Washoe County Health District and the University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine.

The health outcome ranking weighs “length of life” and “quality of life” using different measurements and says which counties are best. In Nevada, the top 5 are:

  1. Douglas
  2. Pershing
  3. Washoe
  4. Storey
  5. Elko

Clark County came in sixth, with Mineral County worst and Esmeralda County not included because too little data is available for its tiny population of just over 700.
