In 1976, The Knox County Health Department was established to faithfully serve the citizens of our county. Our mission is to promote wellness and healthy lifestyles for every Knox County resident. Through mutual collaboration, all of our public health services will be used for the welfare of the entire county population.
We believe Knox County will be a community of knowledgable individuals who reach their full potential by valuing their health, and the safety of their environment. By working together, we will have a brighter, healthier future for every Knox County resident.
