Harrison County Health Department

Bethany, Missouri



Renovations at the health department are nearing the end and in order to get moved back in and organized, the health department will be closed for

 2 weeks beginning JULY 31st THROUGH AUGUST 11th.   

Please refer to the following for services:

*Birth and Death Certificates – we will still provide birth and death certificates while we are closed – CALL AHEAD TO ASSURE WE HAVE STAFF AVAILABLE TO ASSIST!

*WIC Clinic – these will continue every Tuesday at the First United Methodist Church through August 8th.  We will begin WIC services back at the health department beginning August 15th.


*Courier Services – you may still drop off water samples to be taken to the state lab.

*Immunizations – we will not be providing any immunizations while we are closed as refrigeration will need to be moved and maintain acceptable temperatures before we can move vaccine.

*Nursing Services – we will not be providing any nursing services such as blood pressure checks, nailcare, etc… while we are closed.  *You can still drop off med boxes to be filled – CALL AHEAD BEFORE YOU DROP OFF!

We apologize for any inconveniences during this time but we are excited to get our newly renovated building ready to open to the public beginning August 14th.  Please be aware that there will be exterior work completed after we are moved in.   For any questions, please contact us at 660-425-6324.  Thanks!

Summer Safety Event
Thank you to everyone who attended the Summer Safety Event sponsored by NTA, Harrison County Health Department and the Bethany Aquatic Center. Kids received goody bags filled with sunscreen, bug repellent wipes, measuring tapes for fish, Josh the Otter books, and a FREE bike helmet if they needed one.  NTA and the Bethany Aquatic Center performed a mock water rescue for the public to see what to expect if the situation would arise.  For more pictures please visit our Facebook page. 

The CPR in Schools law will go into effect school year 2017-2018. The goal is very simple - to save lives and to empower Missouri’s youth to be lifesavers by giving them the skills and confidence needed to help. Each day in the United States, approximately 1,000 people suffer cardiac arrest outside the hospital. Schools present an opportunity to teach our youth basic, compressions-only CPR. There are many resources available to schools to help with CPR training. Schools should decide which resources best align with their plan for implementing training. The American Heart Association has placed training kits in a lending library system with the nine Regional Professional Developmental Centers and the seven Area Health Educational Centers throughout Missouri. Schools may contact their local center to learn how to check out kits for training; or for more information, please e-mail Krisca Gould at krisca.gould@heart.org, CPR in Schools Manager.
