Pleasant, North Bay, Norway, Raymond, Rochester, Sturtevant, Union Grove, Yorkville, Town and Village of Waterford, Town and City of Burlington. Our mission is to improve the health of the communities we serve through health promotion, disease prevention, and protection from health and environmental hazards.
