The North Shore Health Department has a proud and respected tradition of providing excellent health services to our North Shore communities. With our knowledgeable staff, we are continuing our mission to assure, promote, and protect the health and safety of the people in the North Shore. 

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.
