Office of Public Health

In 2018, the Pennsylvania Department of Health approved the name change of Montgomery County Health Department to Montgomery County Office of Public Health (OPH). As the Office of Public Health continues to integrate with Montgomery County Health and Human Services (HHS), public health programs will have many touchpoints with County human services, particularly Aging & Adult Services, Children &Youth, Drug & Alcohol, Mental Health and more.

It is the Mission of the Montgomery County Office of Public Health 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 #4 in Health Outcomes in the state of Pennsylvania by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

The Montgomery County Office of Public Health is Project Public Health Ready (PPHR) certified and recognized by the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) for our capacity and capability to plan for, respond to, and recover from public health and other emergencies. The certification is valid for 5 years. Montgomery County will be officially recognized for our certification by NACCHO at the 2018 Public Health Preparedness Summit, April 2018 in Atlanta Georgia.
