The Harrison County Health Department strives to improve public health services every year and to add new activities and programs to help prevent, promote and protect the population. We are proud to provide this county with over 40 years of public health services.
29 years ago, Harrison County Hospice was established to meet the needs of our community members. Some believe hospice is a scary word, but we believe it is a needed resource to help families as they navigate through the transition to the end of life. For the past 29 years, Harrison County Hospice has been your ONLY local hospice provider! We want to take this time to not only celebrate this amazing milestone but to share our story.
Harrison County Health Department & Hospice began the paperwork to acquire Home Health from the Harrison County Community Hospital in June of 2022. As many know, this is never a quick process with needing both state and federal approval before we can move forward with the change of ownership. Home Health was a part of the Health Department from 1981-2012, so we were excited when approached by the hospital to bring this service back to the Health Department. Both Home Health and Hospice are needed services in our community and we are excited to continue to bring you quality of care, close to home as your local Home Health and Hospice provider as we move in 2023.
