The Elkhart County Health Department began in 1949. The first staff included a part-time health commissioner, and public health nurses. Healthy Beginnings is pleased to have been serving our community since 1974.
Today the Elkhart County Health Department consists of over 100 people, including 70 full-time employees, working in five divisions. The Health Department offers services to all county residents with a vision of “Healthy Lives, Healthy Communities.”
