About Racine County Public Health Division

About Us

The Racine County Public Health Division (RCPH) is responsible for providing public health services to many communities in Racine County. These communities include Caledonia, Dover, Mt. Pleasant, North Bay, Elmwood Park, Wind Point, Norway, Raymond, Rochester, Sturtevant, Union Grove, Yorkville, Town and Village of Waterford, Town and City of Burlington. We monitor health concerns of entire communities and aim to prevent health problems before they occur.  As a Level III Health Department, we provide at least 14 programs or services which address at least seven focus areas identified in the State of Wisconsin Health Plan.

At RCPH, 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
  • Researching public health issues
  • Assuring a competent workforce
  • Assuring access to primary health care
  • Promoting conditions that support health
