Our proud and respected tradition of providing excellent health services to our North Shore communities gained new strength and added capabilities with combining the North Shore and Shorewood/Whitefish Bay Health Departments on January 1st, 2012.
With our newly integrated resources and knowledgeable staff, we are continuing our mission to improve our residents' health, prevent disease, and safeguard the environment through an organized, collaborative effort. The North Shore Health Department works with a Board of Health, comprised of a licensed medical adviser and members appointed for a two-year term by village presidents or the mayor of each community.
The North Shore Health Department is one of the many benefits that make living in our communities very special. Our services and programs are thoughtfully selected and carefully planned to make our communities safer and healthier, and to provide a better way of life for all residents. We offer a wide variety of programs for adults, seniors, children and infants. Some services are free - others are available at affordable fees.
We received the 2012 North Shore Community Health Survey that was done in collaboration with JKV Research, LLC for Aurora Health Care, Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, Columbia St. Mary’s Health System, Froedtert Health, Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare, and the Center for Urban Population Health. Look for it on the Health Info page.
We encourage you to take advantage of the many ways we can help improve and promote healthy lifestyles for you and your family.
