Message from the Interim Director of Health
It is the Mission of the Montgomery County Health Department (MCHD) to provide public health services and foster collaborative actions that empower our community to improve its health and safety. Our Vision is to optimize the health and wellness of individuals and families through innovative practices. MCHD takes great pride in being ranked #1 in Health Factors and #6 in Health Outcomes in state of Pennsylvania by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

In December 2011, MCHD became Project Public Health Ready (PPHR) certified and was recognized by the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) for the ability to respond to public health emergencies.
