The Columbia County Department of Health (CCDOH), the county’s local health department, is dedicated to the protection and promotion of the health of the residents of Columbia County.  CCDOH provides many important programs and services to community members. 

CCDOH is mandated by the State of New York, derives public health authority through State public health law, and is governed by the county Board of Health.  The Department of Health is led by the Public Health Director who is responsible for safeguarding the public’s health.  A Medical Director, Board of Health, Health Committee (of the County Board of Supervisors), Professional Advisory Committee, and multiple task force committees provide administrative guidance and consultation to CCDOH.
