Summit County Public Health
The mission of Summit County Public Health is to protect and advance the health of the entire community through its policies, programs and activities that protect the safety, health and well-being of the people in Summit County.
The Clinical Health Services Division offers a wide variety of services which focus on disease prevention, health promotion and control of communicable diseases. Some of the division's programs serve all members of the community, while others are targeted to groups that are vulnerable to poor health outcomes.
The Division of Community Health has four main focus areas: population-based prevention, care coordination and case management, early childhood and access to healthcare. We employ a multi-disciplinary approach to service provision, utilizing registered nurses, licensed social workers, and health educators.
Environmental public health addresses the interrelationships between human health and the environment. The environment does not only include the natural environment and natural hazards but also the human-built environment and the unintended human contribution to illness and harm on human health. SCPH addresses these threats through a multi-dimensional approach: public education, regulation, monitoring, remediation, coalition building and advocacy.
