Monroe County Health Department

About Us

The Monroe County Health Department’s vision is to be a leader and a partner in creating a healthier and safer Monroe County community.

Our Mission

The mission of the MCHD is to protect, promote, and improve the health of all people in Monroe County. It is through community relationships, partnerships and assessments that the department identifies priorities and develops health improvement plans. A local health department, government agency, non-profit, or individual cannot overcome every public health challenge alone. Together, we can increase the impact of positive change. The MCHD collaborates on a community health assessment and community health improvement plan every 3-5 years. The following reports serve as an addendum to the assessment and provide a picture of the Monroe County community.
