The Harrison County Health Department will be renovating the Public Health portion of the building beginning December 26th of this year. We will provide updates to the public throughout the renovation project as there will be temporary changes to services that will need to occur to assure the safety of our clients and staff and to assure the continuity of operations will still provide necessary services to the public. What this may mean to you – entering the building in a different location, parking changes, temporary disruption of certain services, use of an alternative location for certain services and others changes during this renovation period. We will keep the communities informed of any interruption in services and provide updates of the renovation through letters, radio, newspaper, and our Facebook page (please “Like” us on Facebook to have immediate updates to health department news). We appreciate everyone’s support and understanding as we go through this renovation. The following is a schedule of what will be occurring during the first few weeks of the construction process:
Beginning December 26th through December 30th – re-tiling and sealing the North, West and South side of the building’s exterior to improve drainage. There will NOT be access on the west side of the building where our hospice entrance is. The health department will be closed this week (December 26th through December 30th) to move EXCEPT for WIC clinic on Tuesday, December 27th will run as normal.
December 28th & 29th – our phone, fax and internet will have intermittent service during this time as we move these items to the top floor. There will be a temporary phone line available for calling the health dept.
Beginning January 3rd: Public Health Services will now be located on the top level of the health department. Entrance is on the West side of the building; please follow signage posted.
