Welcome to The Florida Department of Health in Pinellas County
The Florida Department of Health in Pinellas County was established in 1936 and was the 7th county Health Department to open its doors in the State of Florida. Today, the Health Department has more than 600 employees in seven locations throughout Pinellas County all working to serve your needs in areas that range from controlling infectious diseases to safe drinking water to disaster preparedness. On this site you will find information about all areas of public health that can affect our community.
Public Health is the science of protecting and improving the health of communities through education, promotion of healthy lifestyles, and research for disease and injury prevention. Public Health addresses the health of the community as a whole rather than the health of an individual. Public Health leaders work continuously to prevent disease and to improve the health of our residents and visitors!
