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.”
As you have probably heard, there is a confirmed COVID-19 case in St. Joseph County, Indiana. There are a number of other cases across the state. At this point, Elkhart County does not have a confirmed COVID-19 case. We expect that we will see cases very soon and will report that once we have that information.
