Mission & Vision

Columbia County Department of Health Mission:

The mission of the Department of Health is to protect, preserve, and promote
the health of the people of Columbia County. 



Vision for a Healthy Community:

“A healthy community is clean, safe, and has ready access to health care and all needed human services. Community awareness, diversity, and development are strengthened through knowledgeable, engaged, and 
nurturing involvement by many citizens and leaders who value our population and usable resources, and support physical, mental, social, intellectual, and spiritual well being. A healthy community has a strong Public Health System that includes: planning and policy development, shared leadership among many community partners, effective responses to challenges, assessment, and accountability, and which protects and promotes the health of residents of all ages and the natural and community environments.”
