Welcome to our website for the Florida Department of Health in Lafayette County.  Community Health is very important to the quality of life we enjoy.  It has an impact on everyone’s well-being.  Our Mission is to protect, promote, and improve the health of all people in Florida through integrated state, county, and community efforts.  We accomplish this through assessing the health needs of the community and establishing health objectives to maintain essential personal, family, community and environmental health services.  These objectives are met through our varied services of Family Planning, Immunizations, Dental services, HIV/AIDS, Communicable Disease Surveillance, Breast and Cervical Cancer screening, Sexually Transmitted Infections, Vital Statistics, WIC, Tuberculosis, Chronic Disease, School Health, Healthy Start, Healthiest Weight, Environmental Health Services and Preparedness.  Additionally, we have partnered with third party vendors to offer OB Care at our facility.

Our dedicated staff of 9 associates works hard to assure the health and well-being of our county’s residents and visitors. A joint venture between the State of Florida and the Lafayette County Board of Commissioners, the Florida Department of Health in Lafayette County works in partnership with other health care providers, contractors, and social service providers in an integrated and coordinated effort to maximize resources. Our focus is providing basic public health services and preventing communicable disease.

We welcome you to visit our Community Health Department and utilize the services we provide. Our goal is to meet the public health needs of our county and the citizens we serve.

Kerry S. Waldron, MPA, Administrator
