About Us

Harrison County Home and Public Health (HCHPH), is a local, community-based leader in promoting and protecting health and preventing disease for the residents of Harrison County, IA.

We work in 12 program areas with approximately 40 separate services and activities that address individual, family and community health needs throughout the lifespan.

HCHPH’s Vision for Harrison County is Healthy People in Healthy Communities.

HCHPH’s Strategic Plan 2018 – 2020 puts forth the following four strategic directions:

National Accreditation
Public Perception
Grant Capacity

HCHPH’s services and activities include immunizations, women’s health and family planning, maternal health, parents as teachers support services, child passenger safety seat checks, skilled nursing home health, epidemiology and disease surveillance, emergency preparedness and response as well as community health needs assessment and improvement planning.

HCHPH is committed to collaboration and community engagement as the primary way to involve the community as a whole, specific populations, community and business groups, healthcare providers, governing entities and elected officials in identifying health needs and strategies for mobilizing community support to meet them.

HCHPH’s work is grounded in modern, evidence-based public health and home health philosophy and practice.  HCHPH reports to the Harrison County Board of Health and we are guided by the Iowa Department of Public Health’s mission and guidelines for county public health organizations. HCHPH is continually building on our outstanding staff qualifications and commitment to future improvement.
