About Us

The Central Racine County Health Department (CRCHD) is responsible for providing public health services to many communities in Racine County. These communities include Caledonia, Dover, Mt. Pleasant, North Bay, Norway, Raymond, Rochester, Sturtevant, Union Grove, Yorkville, Town and Village of Waterford, Town and City of Burlington. Our mission is to improve the health of the communities we serve through health promotion, disease prevention, and protection from health and environmental hazards. We monitor health concerns of entire communities and aim to prevent health problems before they occur.

At CRCHD, our perspective is that “success is sometimes measured by what does not happen.” To this end, we work with the communities we serve on a broad array of environmental health, community health and preparedness programs to prevent disease and promote well-being. Public health focuses on the whole population and essential services include:

  • Monitoring population health data
  • Investigating health issues and hazards
  • Providing health information
  • Mobilizing community partnerships
  • Enforcing laws and regulations
  • Linking people to needed services
  • Developing policies and programs
  • Evaluating service effectiveness
