Personal Health Services

If you’re looking for information on our Public Health Services, you’re in the right place. We’ve changed the name of this division to Personal Health Services, which more accurately reflects the spirit of the work we do. Our staff serves area communities by providing nursing services in homes, in schools, at work, and in the Health Department.

We maintain nursing staff to assist Greene County’s communities in prevention, education and assurance of resources. Personal Health Services provide assistance to families with challenges related to communicable disease, maternal and child health, and nutrition. We also provide a host of services for acute and chronically ill residents through both education and preventative measures.

We are currently in the early phases of the vaccination program.

We will work to get the word out as to when clinics are scheduled and open to the public through multiple communication channels. Be sure to follow us on Facebook!
