Public Health

Public Health's goal is to protect, promote, and improve the health, environment, and quality of life to the residents of Elbert County. The primary purpose of public health is to assure the conditions in which people can be healthy.

Most of the work of public health agencies is population based; that is, it focuses on improving the health of the entire community.

Public Health Services are available to the entire community and are partly funded by tax dollars. Elbert County Public Health is devoted to preventative services and education. We are unable to offer emergency or sick care.

Every donation you give helps someone find a solution to the life-threatening situation they face – whether it’s red blood cells to stabilize accident victims, platelets to sustain cancer patients, or plasma to support those who’ve been seriously burned. Because of you, life doesn't stop.
