Striving for a Healthier Community
Welcome to the Wilson County Health Department. This website is designed to inform the community of the available services. It will also post health concerns, notices, seasonal alerts, and other important information as necessary.
Public Health is meant to maintain good health for the citizens of the County and the good health status of a community. The professional staff of the Health Department are here to assess conditions in the community and to assure the highest quality of health status possible for all the citizens.
We invite all citizens to visit the Wilson County Health Department to become familiar with the services of the department and to seek care from its staff of highly-trained professionals.
If you would like to report a public health or environmental health emergency during the hours of 8:00am to 5:00pm, Monday-Friday, please call (252)237-3141. If you need to report an emergency after regular business hours please call 911 emergency services.
The department has a long history of working collaboratively with other public and private providers of health care and related services. The Public Health ethic addresses community-wide, population-based health-related issues through preventive approaches.
Public Health has become a major part of the health care puzzle to promote prevention as a means of controlling rising health care costs. Our goal is to integrate prevention services and education with medical care for the benefit of all the citizens of Wilson County. We continuously invite public participation in the development of goals, objectives and strategies for community health improvement, through participation in the Community Health Assessment (CHA), periodic customer surveys (website or in-house), and an open invitation to attend all meetings of the Board of Health.
