Health Department


Douglas County Health Department is committed to providing continuity of public health services for county residents as our new health department grows and begins to provide services on its own. We have contracted with Tri-County Health Department to continue providing many public health services through the end of 2022. As we take over various services, we will update the information below. All services will be transitioned to DCHD by the end of December 2022.
