Vision, Mission, and Core Values

 

The Fulton County Board of Health (FCBOH) is guided by core values that shape our public health policies and work throughout Fulton County.

On July 1, 2017, the Fulton County Department of Health and Wellness transitioned into a new governance and became the Fulton County Board of Health.  As one of 18 public health districts in Georgia, we are now aligned with the Georgia Department of Public Health (GDPH). As the largest single health district in Georgia, FCBOH serves nearly one million citizens who reside in Fulton County. Our health centers now include state-of-the-art clinics to serve our clients along with a newly renovated Office of Vital Records located in the Fulton County Government Center. The Office of Vital Records offers state-of-the-art technology and a waiting area that features Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) seating to accommodate all customers more efficiently.

Board of Health's nearly 400 employees serve a diverse population that utilizes our eight health centers located throughout the county.  Our goals are to protect residents from health threats, increase access to health services to improve health outcomes, and provide information that assists Fulton County citizens in living healthier lives.

MESSAGE FROM DR. TOOMEY

Welcome to the Fulton County Board of Health website. We are working at the Board of Health to improve the health and well-being of all Fulton County residents to ensure that “All People are Healthy.”

Three of our main goals are keeping our community safe from health threats, promoting better health, and helping Fulton County residents access the health services and information they need. We have a commitment to the residents of Fulton County to promote and protect the health of individuals, families and communities.

On July 1, 2017, the Fulton County Department of Health and Wellness transitioned into a new governance and became the Fulton County Board of Health. The new Board of Health is now aligned with the Georgia Department of Public Health and joins the 17 other public health districts in Georgia. 

We appreciate the opportunity to serve you and hope that you find our website informative, easy-to-use and beneficial in helping you locate our health centers, services and resources that you and your family need to live healthier lives.
