Mission Statement: (See Web Site For Updated Information)
Formerly known as the Clark County Health District, our new name better reflects our regional mission "to protect and promote the health, the environment and the well-being of Southern Nevada residents and visitors".

To this end, the health district offers services and regulatory supervision that impact the public every day ? from the food they eat and the water they drink, to the public establishments they visit, the businesses they operate and the requirements they must meet in order to work in certain industries such as food service and child care.

The Southern Nevada Health District is one of the largest local public health organizations in the United States. The health district serves over 1.7 million residents, which is 70 percent of Nevada?s total population. Also, the district is responsible with safeguarding the public health of more than 37 million visitors to Las Vegas each year.
