  • About the Health Department

    Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department’s mission is to protect and improve the health of all people and places in Pierce County.

     

    As part of our mission, the Health Department tackles known and emerging health risks through policy, programs and treatment in order to protect public health.

    We are one of only 163 accredited health departments in the country and among 6 in the state to have met or exceeded the Public Health Accreditation Board’s quality standards.
