Community Health Services


Public Health delivers essential services to improve health and well-being in Island County. Working at the community level promotes well-being, prevents disease, and helps reduce health gaps caused by access to healthy food and healthcare, location, income, and other factors.

The community health division plans health improvement, collaborates with community partners, provides essential programs, and increases access to services. We are always striving towards better health outcomes, working in partnership with the communities we serve.
