Laclede County Health
"Protecting Our Community"
405 Harwood Ave.
On behalf of the Laclede County Health Department (LCHD) staff and Board of Trustees, I welcome you to our “new and improved” website. Our agency is grateful to Mr. Alva Hazell for his work on our website over the past few years. We only hope that we can meet his high standards as we take on the responsibility internally.
The work of “Public Health” is constantly changing, requiring my staff and me to remain diligent in keeping up-to-date on a wide variety of health-related topics. Whether it’s a Communicable Disease outbreak, a new Vaccination offering, a change in the nutrition program for WIC, an Environmental/Sanitation concern, or Emergency Response needs – we strive to provide you with the highest possible quality of public health care and education. We are continually learning and looking for better ways to serve you – our county residents.
As the Administrator of LCHD; a portion of my work is to always look at our current programs and services to ensure they are meeting the needs of our county. I take this responsibility very seriously, even after 25 years of service. Although we must follow guidelines and regulations, it is our goal to meet the needs of Laclede County as we are able. This agency is extremely important to me, as is our clients. I appreciate the opportunity to serve you!
Charla Baker, Administrator
