Message from the Director
It is the mission of the Montgomery County Health Department (MCHD) to assure the provision of services that promote, protect and preserve the public's health. By doing so, we have improved our community and county’s health by creating a healthier place to live, work and play. MCHD takes great pride in being ranked #2 in Health Factors and #5 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.

Dr. Joseph M. DiMino
Director of Health/Medical Director
