Mission Statement


The purpose of the Brown County Health Department is to encourage and promote individual and community health and well being for persons who live, work or visit in Brown County.

Program Description

The Brown County Health Department, in collaboration with community partners, accomplishes its mission by providing services relating to: communicable disease surveillance and control, prevention of chronic disease/disability, maternal/child health promotion, school health, management of environmental hazards, licensing and inspection visits, laboratory services, and preparation for emergency situations in our community. Communicable disease surveillance and control involves investigation of cases/contacts, provision of needed health care services, immunizations and education. Maternal/child health promotion is addressed through parenting education, injury prevention education, home visits, care coordination of children with special health care needs and adolescent prenatal classes. School health services provide vision and hearing screening. Management of environmental problems is focused on animal/rabies investigation, human health hazard evaluation and follow-up, code enforcement, and well water testing, evaluation and follow-up. Licensing and inspection visits include licensing/inspection of food, lodging, body art, and recreational establishments. Laboratory services include tests related to licensed establishments and well and surface water sampling.

Additional public health services include advocating for sound public health policy to promote optimal health and well being of individuals and the environment.
