The Health Department has been providing public health services to the residents of Ridgefield since the 1900’s.  The goal that we strive for is to coordinate and assure the preservation, protection and promotion of good health, well-being and the quality of life for all the residents in our community.

We work towards this goal by:

•    Monitoring health status to identify community health problems.
•    Diagnosing and investigating health problems and health hazards in the community.
•    Informing, educating, and empowering people about health issues.
•    Mobilizing community partnerships to identify and solve health problems.
•    Developing policies and plans that support individual and community health efforts.
•    Enforcing laws and regulations that protect health and ensure safety.
•    Linking people to needed personal health services and assuring preventive care when otherwise unavailable.
•    Assuring a competent public health workforce.

The Ridgefield Board of Health's services are designed to motivate people towards behavioral change to prevent serious health problems through health promotion, early identification, disease prevention, and general health maintenance. All these programs of health promotion, along with encouragement of good pre-natal care and proper medical supervision of children, can and do lead to an improved level of health in the community as a whole.

The Board of Health is proud of the many important programs which have been developed over the past year to meet the growing needs of its residents. One of the most important functions of the Board of Health is the promotion of health and the prevention of illness among infants and pre-school age children. These are, after all, the formative years from which good health habits can be carried on for a lifetime.
