Randolph County Health Department Vision
The Randolph County Health Department functions with the overall philosophy of maximizing wellness and healthy lifestyles in the community. It needs to be thought of as the team for public health in the community to prevent illness and the spread of disease and to serve the county as a whole to the best of its ability. The team consists of nursing, social work, environmental, health education, therapies, physicians, laboratory support, clerical support, and all disciplines that contribute to health care. It is this team approach that is extremely valuable in the interfacing with other community agencies so that the three public health core functions of assessment, assurance, and policy development, are used to their fullest. That this team is able to assess the needs of the community, assure that services are available to the population, and advocate for policy development to enrich the health of the community. The team concept is of utmost importance to the welfare of the community and is the only way to effectively serve the community as a whole. As long as the Randolph County Health Department acts in good faith to prevent illness and promote wellness for the public good it will have served its purpose and fulfilled the wishes of all the citizens of Randolph County to do the best job for the most people. Most of us need medical care sometime in our lives, but we need public health all of the time. Let the health department and its purpose survive and prosper.
