The state department of health works to protect and improve the health and well-being of all North Dakotans. To that goal, the organization offers a number of services provided statewide by public health professionals to assure that water is safe, children have their immunizations, restaurants are safe and birth certificates are correct — to name just a few.
The department’s main office is in Bismarck, with local health units in each of the state’s
53 counties. More than 300 employees and public and private partners help make the department’s goal a reality — making a difference by helping people make their lives healthier. Its website has information on health topics, services available and a listing of local health units by specialty.
Local health units offer a variety of services, including communicable disease investigation and intervention, family planning, immunizations, STD counseling and testing, WIC and nutrition services, women’s health services and more. Services vary by location. North Dakota’s public health system is decentralized with
28 independent local public health units working in partnership with the North Dakota Department of Health. A listing of local health units in Ward County follows.
