Department of Health
The Albany County Department of Health strives to protect and promote the health of individuals, families, communities and our environment. We work with many other community partners to offer a variety of programs and services to achieve our mission:
- Prevent communicable and chronic diseases, injuries, and disabilities;
- Protect against environmental hazards that threaten health and safety; and
- Promote the health and development of infants and children and the wellness of our citizens and our communities.
I encourage you to browse this web site to get more information about the programs and services that we provide. We have a dedicated staff of public health and administrative professionals who are committed to enhancing the health of the Albany County community. Our programs affect everyone who lives in our neighborhoods, eats in our restaurants, works, plays, or even visits us in Albany County! Please call upon our department if we can provide additional information or be of assistance to you.
