100 Years of Caring

The Jefferson County Department of Health has been one of the leading public health agencies serving residents of Jefferson County for over 100 years. It all started in 1917, with the county's first Health Officer, Dr. Judson D. Dowling, who promoted the pasteurization of milk and fought battles against rabies, tuberculosis, and poor sanitation. Read more about our history here.

JCDH provides outpatient health care for underinsured and uninsured residents. These centers are open from 7:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. M-F (except on Holidays) and accept patients with the following health coverage: Medicaid, AllKids, Blue Cross and Medicare.
