Prevention, people, and partnerships sum up the work of local public health. Public health is population-based, meaning it focuses on improving the health of the entire community rather than addressing individual health care needs.
The Health Department is organized into five service divisions: Administration; Community Health Services; Environmental Health Services; Health Communication, Education, and Planning; Public Health Clinical Services.
Together, we are working to make Weld County the healthiest place to live, learn, work and play.
In partnership with the communities we serve, Weld County Department of Public Health and Environment preserves, promotes and protects the health and environment of the residents of Weld County.
What We Value
- The World Health Organization's ecological model of health: "Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, not merely the absence of disease or infirmity."
- The diversity of individuals and communities we serve and their differing approaches to health
- What we do should assist people in addressing underlying factors that affect good health
- Effective leadership
- Being responsible stewards of public trust and resources
- A diverse staff that is selected with care, treated respectfully, held accountable and encouraged to grow
- Continuous improvement
- Balancing science and practice with the wisdom and beliefs of the people we serve
- Emphasis on prevention, health promotion and early intervention
"Public health is the science and art of preventing disease, prolonging life and promoting health through the organized efforts and informed choices of society, organizations - public and private, communities and individuals". Winslow, 1920
Weld County Department of Public Health and Environment is part of a local system that focuses on the following:
- Preventing epidemics and the spread of disease
- Protecting against environmental hazards
- Preventing injuries
- Promoting and encouraging healthy behaviors
- Responding to disasters and assisting communities in recovery
- Assuring the quality and accessibility of health services
We are an Accredited Health Department
On November 15 2016, the Weld County Department of Public Health and Environment was officially accredited by the national Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB). The accreditation process took almost 3-years to complete and involved 12 domains and 100 focus areas. In addition to submitting over 425 pieces of documentation, a PHAB site evaluation team spent 2-days meeting and interviewing Health Department leadership, staff, partners, and the Board of County Commissioners. The value of accreditation strengthens the Health Department to better serve Weld County residents through continuous quality improvement, partnerships, and accountability. The Health Department must apply for reaccreditation every 5-years and submit an annual progress report.
"The Environmental Health Services (EHS) Division of the Weld County Department of Public Health and Environment is responsible for performing inspections, investigations, and evaluations to ensure compliance with local ordinances and state statutes, in order to preserve and perpetuate a healthy environment.
The EHS Division's primary mission is to protect human health through scientific risk assessment, the development of policies, monitoring and inspection, consultation, education, and the enforcement of regulations designed to protect the food, water, and air supplies, within our community."
