Our Mission Statement

The Mission of the Denville Health Department is to protect, promote and enhance the health and wellness of all who reside in, work in, or visit the Township of Denville through the provision of comprehensive and superior public health services.

Values:  Accountability, Appreciation, Commitment to Service, Excellence, Innovation

We are a leader in improving health and well-being in your Community. 

The health department is responsible for:

Protecting you from health threats, the everyday and the exceptional.  Your health department makes sure that the restaurant food that you eat, the lake & pool water that you swim in and the air you breathe are all safe.  It’s ready to respond to any health emergency – be it bioterrorism, SARS, West Nile Virus or an environmental hazard.

Educating you and your neighbors about health issues.  Your health department gives you information that allows you to make healthy decisions every day, like exercising more, eating right, quitting smoking or simply washing your hands to keep from spreading illness.  During a public health emergency, your health department provides important alerts and warnings to protect your health.

Providing healthy solutions.  Your health department offers the preventative care that you need to avoid disease and to maintain your health.  It provides flu shots, cancer screenings, blood work, blood pressure screenings and safe food handling classes.

Advancing community health.  Your health department takes part in developing new policies and standards that address existing and emerging challenges to your community’s health while enforcing a range of laws to help keep you safe.  Your health department works through research and staff training to maintain expertise and deliver up-to-date, cutting edge health programs.
