Rutland, VT local health office building

The Rutland Local Health Office covers Rutland County and the Rutland Hospital Service Area. We live in the communities we serve, and are here to protect and promote the health of all Vermonters. We do this in many ways and with many partners. Working with community coalitions, we address public health concerns like tobacco use, obesity and substance abuse. We work with schools, worksites and other partners to create an environment of health by addressing core issues that negatively affect health. We are involved with health care reform addressing access to care, clinical best practice and self-management support. We provide direct services by enrolling pregnant women, new mothers and young children into the WIC Program. We also provide immunizations and make referrals to other community programs and resources. We invite you to learn about the many ways we can help you, your family, and your community be healthy.
