As a division of the Georgia Department of Human Resources we provide a variety of Nursing and Environmental Health services.

Our clinical services include immunizations, women's health and WIC (supplemental food program)and the Dental program.

Our environmental health section is responsible for enforcement of several state regulations involving on-site sewage systems (septic tanks), inspection of food service facilities (Scores), tourist courts (hotels, motels, etc.), and public swimming pools. We investigate complaints related to these programs as well as other environmental problems. The department also conducts water samples of individual wells for bacterial contamination.
