Lorain County Public Health (LCPH) is a local public health district that serves Lorain County, Ohio. We are governed by our own board, who are appointed by local mayors, city managers, and township trustees. Our funding sources include grants, fees, and a local levy that make up about a quarter of our budget.
We are responsible for all cities and townships in Lorain County except the City of Vermilion, which falls under the jurisdiction of the Erie County Health Department.
LCPH Mission: To create a healthy place for all to live, work, and play by preventing disease in the community, empowering people to make better choices, and promoting overall health and wellness.
LCPH Vision: To create programs and services that allow and encourage the healthy choice to be the easy choice, operate in a sustainable fashion that reflects responsible stewardship, lead by example in the community, and manage our organization to effectively face current and future public health challenges.
