Mission Statement

“We promote and protect the health of the public and the environment.”

DHEC Public Health Region 2 provides a broad range of health services for preventing disease, improving wellness and quality of life, and assisting the people of our region in building healthy communities.

Public health programs emphasize primary prevention and related services to all ages and aspects of the community. Programs vary from traditional immunizations and maternal and child health, to nutrition, health education, counseling and home health services. We provide treatment for people with various health problems, including communicable, acute and chronic diseases.

We partner closely with individuals and institutions to assure continuity of care. We also assist families and individuals in establishing medical homes in the private sector.

Environmental Health program activities prevent disease by enforcing standards for food safety, control and prevention of rabies in animals and people, sanitation of public places, and residential sewage and wastewater systems. The health department also provides laboratory services, conducts epidemiological investigations, and provides public health expertise through community collaboration.
