About LCHD...

 

Logan County Health District is a general local health district located in the county seat of Bellefontaine, Ohio, and serving the Logan County community since 1920. 


The Health District’s vision is: Our community enjoys optimal health and wellness. 

 

Currently, the Logan County Health District (LCHD) offers in-house and outreach child and adult immunization clinics, environmental health services, and records births and deaths in Logan County.  LCHD also operates the county’s Women, Infants and Children (WIC) supplemental food program and Bureau for Children with Medical Handicaps (BCMH) program.

 

The mission of the Health District focuses on:

  • Promoting the health and environment of its residents

  • Continual evaluation of agency efficiency, roles and competency

  • Identification of the on-going needs of the community

  • Training staff to improve public health effectiveness

  • Educating the public to provide readiness and reassurance

  • Fostering collaborative community partnerships

Local Health Districts in the state of Ohio are charged with the responsibility of ensuring the community’s health, specifically child and maternal health, and are the primary health care source for under-served populations typified by low-income, uninsured, and under-insured segments.
