The mission of the Macomb County Health Department is to improve, promote, and protect the personal and environmental health of our residents and our communities.
Macomb County Health Department was created by action of the Board of Supervisors in 1947, and has been carrying out its mission for over 60 years.
The Health Department accomplishes its mission by providing a wide range of programs and services through three major divisions: The Environmental Health Services Division, which includes restaurant inspection, community health and safety, shelter, waste, and water quality management; the Family Health Services Division, which includes immunization, family planning, WIC, and other family and maternal/child health programs; and the Health Promotion/Disease Control Division, which includes health education, nutrition, community-based chronic disease prevention, and disease surveillance and control programs. The Health Department also oversees the Medical Examiner's Office and the Animal Shelter, provides health-related data and statistics, and maintains an Emergency Preparedness capability which cuts across all internal divisions.
Macomb County Health Department undergoes an Accreditation Review every three years, and is fully accredited by the Michigan Public Health Accreditation Commission
