For Your Convenience

Board of Health

Monongalia County Health Department (MCHD) was authorized by the Monongalia County Court in August 1929 and organized Dec. 21, 1929. Its headquarters were in the basement of the Monongalia County Courthouse. A part-time city health department existed prior to forming MCHD and existed for two years following MCHD's conception.

In February 1973, federal funding was secured through the Hill-Burton Act for the building of a new home for public health. On Sept. 13, 1975, Monongalia County Public Health Center opened its doors at its present location at 453 Van Voorhis Road. Its mission was to preserve health and to prevent sickness and injury and to maintain wellness. Thirty-three individuals were on staff. Since then, Monongalia County Health Department has tripled its employees. Its mission continues to be achieving a healthy community by protecting and promoting public health through education, training, community awareness, advocacy and the provision of health services.
