The Health Department began in 1910 in the City of Mansfield.  Today it includes all of Richland County, except the City of Shelby, to protect and promote the health and welfare of the public.

Our Public Health Clinic provides non-emergency health care services.  Public Health Nursing provides health screenings for all ages.  Environmental Health protects the public from water and food contamination.  WIC provides infant and new mother nutrition.  Call us to talk about more of our many health services.

Richland Public Health is open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday and from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Fridays.

Board meetings
are normally the third Monday of the month at 7 p.m. at 555 Lexington Avenue. January and February's board meeting is held on the fourth Monday of the month. Meetings are open to the public. The agenda includes an opportunity for public comment.
