MISSION STATEMENT

The mission of the Price County Public Health is to provide comprehensive, efficient, effective in-home and community health care on an intermittent basis for all citizens in Price County, and to contribute to individual, family and community wellness for all Price County residents.

PUBLIC HEALTH PROGRAMS

What is Public Health? Public health is an organized set of activities aimed at promoting optimal health for individuals; protecting communities, families and individuals from communicable disease and potential health hazards and preventing or controlling chronic and acute illness.

The official local health department is the focal point for the delivery of public health services. There are many other public and voluntary health and social service agencies whose work requires coordination with the local health department. This relationship enhances a public health delivery system. It is the responsibility of the local health department to assure that all available health resources are being used effectively and efficiently for the purpose of maintaining or improving the public's health in the community as a whole.

To accomplish this purpose, local governments provide, through an organized health department, certain basic public health services which include:
