We Are Committed to a Healthy County

The Health Department is committed to the health and well being of Worcester County.

A staff of health care professionals provides quality services pertaining to mental health, substance abuse counseling, maternal child health, family planning, personal health, adult health, environmental health, communicable disease, developmental disabilities, and prevention programs.

These services are designed to promote health, prevent illness, and to improve a citizen's ability to lead a productive life. Some services are available every day of the week, while others are offered less frequently. To obtain health department services, it is suggested you call for an appointment. Services are available without regard to the consumer's race, color, creed, sex, or national origin.

A sliding fee scale is used to determine cost of services. No one is denied services due to inability to pay.

It's your Health Department, so take advantage of the friendly and concerned staff by visiting or calling the closest clinic to your home.
