The 2013 County Health Rankings from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation have just come out. In New York, Livingston County is the healthiest. Yates ranks 6th, Ontario 11th, Seneca 23rd, Schuyler 29th, Cayuga 35th, Steuben 44th and Wayne 46th.
Ontario County Public Health Director Mary Beer says the report gives them a good point of reference in planning future public health efforts.
Beer says there are two areas Ontario County needs improvement in, smoking and preventable hospital stays.
