The Florida Department of Health in Washington County provides public health and medical services to the residents and visitors of Washington County. The Washington County Health Unit held its first clinic on November 12, 1942. Our current building was constructed in the 1970’s and has been expanded several times since then. The most recent addition was a new front lobby which was opened to the public May 19, 2014. Currently, the health department has more than 40 employees and works close with the surrounding counties.
Together across our counties and communities, the Florida Department of Health is working to shape Florida to be the healthiest state in the nation. We thank you for your continued support and look forward to working together to keep Washington County, Florida, a healthy place to live, work and play.
