Mission Statement

To ensure the health, safety and quality of life for all St. Lawrence County residents. The department is dedicated to protecting the health of our community by:

  • Controlling the spread of disease;
  • Promoting healthy choices;
  • Providing timely health information;
  • Promoting the health and development of infants and children;
  • Plan for and help to mitigate any public health emergency. 

The department’s philosophy is that prevention is better than a cure, healthy families need healthy environments, safety first must be a way of life, and that people must be empowered to take care of themselves.

 The St. Lawrence County Public Health Department has been serving the county since 1936. We offer a wide variety of health services and programs to county residents, geared toward improving both individual health and well being; and that of the community.
