The Madison County Health Department is the entity certified by the Illinois Department of Public Health to undertake the planning and implementation of a community health program designed to address the priority community health needs of Madison County residents.  The Department provides a core of services in the areas of potable water supplies, food protection, infectious disease control and community health education.  Other programs are instituted as local needs are identified and resources to support addressing those needs are found.


Healthy choices, people and places.  Healthy Madison County.

Our mission is to promote, protect, and assure conditions for optimal health through leadership, partnership, prevention and response. 

We believe in...

  • Being sensitive to cultural factors influencing health
  • Encouraging employees to pursue personal and professional growth
  • Delivering high quality services
  • Identifying and minimizing health disparities
  • Maintaining a qualified work force dedicated to fulfilling their roles
  • Providing programs necessary to promote and protect community
  • Sustaining partnerships and maintaining community collaborations       



Madison County Health Department encourages our community to be better prepared and we invite community members to join us in this effort.  One opportunity to get involved in preparedness in Madison County is to Become A Volunteer with our Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) You do not have to have any medical background to be an MRC Volunteer.  We are seeking people 18 years of age and older with a variety of backgrounds and interests to join the Madison County Medical Reserve Corps to help us if we should ever have an emergency here in Madison County.  Volunteers will learn about the Madison County Medical Reserve Corps, Public Health Emergency Response, Incident Command System, Strategic National Stockpile, Points of Dispensing, and Family Preparedness.
