Public Health

Committed to protecting and enhancing the health and quality of life for all members of the community, the Department of Public Health responds through actions by three divisions - Health Services, Environmental Health and Protection, and Humane Services. To achieve this goal, the department coordinates with federal, state, and local organizations to provide a wide range of services that have a profound impact on the lives of St. Charles County’s residents and visitors each day.
