"Caring for our communities"
Welcome to the North Central District webpage!

Here at the North Central District Health Department, we are committed to providing our communities with assistance and guidance to improve our counties. The district is also taking strides in keeping up with the ever increasing technology by implementing new programs and projects to improve our surrounding counties.

The North Central District Health Department strives to promote and protect the community health of (Henry, Shelby, Spencer, and Trimble Counties). As Director, my goal is for our district health department to be visible to the community and viewed as organization of service that is making a difference in the lives of the people we serve. I want the community to know and understand what the health department does and how we impact their lives on a daily basis.
