Welcome to the Department of Health in St. Johns County Environmental Public Health Service Center!

Basic sanitation is a primary function of core public health. This Service Center plays a major role in the fulfillment of the overall mission of the Florida Department of Health in St. Johns County (DOH - St. Johns) through its efforts to prevent injury and disease through reducing environmental risks. This is accomplished through routine inspections, community health education, investigation of complaints, and enforcement of laws relating to safety and sanitation.
