HALES CORNERS HEALTH DEPARTMENT PASSES REVIEW BY STATE
MADISON—Dr. Seth Foldy, State Health Officer, today announced that
the Hales Corners Health Department has successfully passed the state’s
health department review. As a result, the Hales Corners Health Department
will maintain their Level I status.
“The hard-working staff of the Hales Corners Health Department help
make their community a healthier and safer place to live,” said Foldy.
“Their department has an actively engaged and supportive Board of
Health, and does an excellent job of monitoring and assessing the needs of
their community and working with partners to assure a healthy community.”
The Wisconsin Department of Health Services is required to formally
review the operations of all 92 Wisconsin local health departments at the
county or municipality level at least every five years. The review
establishes the health department as a level I, II or III agency. A level
I agency meets the minimum requirements and a level III agency meets the
maximum requirements established for a local health department.
The Hales Corners Health Department provides services important to the
community, such as:
- Communicable Disease Prevention and Control
- Environmental Health and Pest Control
- Injury Prevention and Safety Health Education and Services
