The Division of Health Services works in cooperation with a variety of local, state and federal agencies to help St. Charles County remain as one of Missouri’s healthiest places to raise a family or operate a business.

 Advanced technology and a cross-trained staff have enabled the division to expand how we’re able to assist our clients. Those interacting with our programs will notice a more efficient structure and a greater number of services available. In addition to these new services, our division continues to provide many of the traditional programs that you’ve come to expect from us.

Building upon the health successes underway within this community, we are certain that our wider array of services and more effective means of providing them will better meet St. Charles County's health needs.  We look forward to the opportunity to help you and your family.
