The Vision of Morrison County Public Health is to assure that every individual has the opportunity to achieve and maintain an optimal level of health and independence and to lead a vital productive life.


Protecting You from Health Threats

MCPH works to prevent disease outbreaks and makes sure the tap water you drink, the restaurant food you eat and the air you breathe are all safe. It’s also ready to respond to any health emergency-be it:

  • Bioterrorism
  • An environmental hazard
  • SARS
  • West Nile Virus

Educating You & Your Neighbors About Health Issues

MCPH gives you information about making healthy decisions, like exercising more, eating right, quitting smoking or simply washing your hands to keep from spreading illness. During a public health emergency, MCPH also provides important alerts and warnings to protect your health.

Providing Healthy Solutions

MCPH offers the preventive care you need to avoid disease and maintain your health. It provides information and referral for flu shots for the elderly and helps mothers get prenatal care to give their babies a healthy start. MCPH also helps provide children with regular check-ups, immunizations, and good nutrition to help them grow and learn.

Advancing Community Health

MCPH takes part in developing new policies and standards that address existing and emerging challenges to your community’s health while enforcing a range of laws to help keep you safe. MCPH works through research and staff training to maintain expertise and deliver up-to-date, cutting-edge health programs.
