It is the vision of the Baltimore County Department of Health to have healthy people living, working and playing in Baltimore County. We aim to promote health and prevent disease by educating communities, advocating for healthy lifestyles, linking people to resources and treating various health conditions. As a service-oriented agency, we encourage you to use this valuable tool to access our services, get important health information, or to contact us.
