BROWN COUNTY HEALTH DEPARTMENT PASSES REVIEW BY STATE
MADISON—Dr. Seth Foldy, State Health Officer, today announced that
the Brown County Health Department has successfully passed the state’s
health department review. As a result, the Brown County Health Department
will maintain their Level III status.
“The hard-working staff of the Brown County 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 providing a number of quality public
health services to the 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 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 Brown County Health Department provides services important to the
community, such as:
- Household Sharps Disposal Program
- Environmental Health Inspections
- Public Health Preparedness/Emergency Response
