Protecting the Community Health

The Health Department is where the state and the locality come together in a common effort to protect the health of all residents. Our goal is to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to be healthy.

About Health Services 

The Chesterfield Health District is composed of three local health departments - Chesterfield County, Powhatan County and the City of Colonial Heights. As a state agency,

  • Each local health department operates in a cooperative relationship with the city or county that it serves.
  • Each of the 35 health districts in network delivers public health services across the state.
  • Each health district is composed of multiple local health departments operating under the auspices of the Virginia Department of Health.

Public health encompasses many things, such as

  • preventing epidemics and the spread of disease
  • protecting against environmental hazards
  • preventing injuries
  • promoting and encouraging healthy behaviors
  • assuring the quality and accessibility of health services

Information about Chesterfield Health Department services is available from the Virginia Department of Health Web site.  


"To protect, preserve and promote optimum health for the community through excellence in public health service."
