Adams County Health Department was formed by a tax referendum in
1944. The mission of the department is Disease and Injury
prevention, Health Protection and Health Promotion.
There are approximately fifty employees in these divisions:
Clinical and Environmental Services, Family Health and Community
Education, and Supportive Services.
Our department is governed by a Board of Health, a medical
director and a public health administrator. Revenue comes from
the local health tax levy, fees for services and program grants.
