State health officials have announced that the Florence County Health Department has successfully passed the state’s health department review.  As a result, the Florence County Health Department will increase their Level II status to a Level III.

“Local public health staff help make their community a healthier place in which to live, play, work, and learn,” said Karen McKeown, State Health Officer.  “The department has an actively engaged and supportive Board of Health, and does an excellent job of documenting their work assessing and developing plans to address Florence County health needs.”
