The Jackson County Health Department provides a broad range of health promotion and preventive health services to the residents and visitors of Jackson County. The cities of Jackson and Wellston contract with the health district to form a Combined General Health District. The cities of Jackson and Wellston along with the twelve townships, the villages of Coalton and Oak Hill and the president of the County Commissioners all are involved in appointing Board of Health members. The Board of Health establishes public health policies and monitors and directs the programs and services of the health department.

The health commissioner serves at the pleasure of the Board of Health and is charged to implement the programs and services approved by the Board of Health. Most activities that help improve the health status of our residents take place in our clinics, our schools and your homes. Both personal health protection and promotion along with environmental protection are critical areas of focus for the Jackson County Health Department.

The staff of the health department are dedicated and hardworking individuals. We have done much to protect your health and the environment. However, a true partnership is needed with you and your neighbors if we expect to truly improve our health status in Jackson County. You are the most critical part of a healthy individual, community and environment.
