"It is easier to preserve health than to recover
it, easier to prevent disease than to cure it."
-- Dr. George Cheyne, 1725

It is the mission of the Craven County Health Department to build upon the history of public health while responding to the dynamics of the growth of our county and the changing priorities of the health system.

  2. a doorway of access to the medical community.
  3. environmental services to ensure a safe community in which to live.
  4. assistance to employees in their professional growth and recognizing them for their accomplishments.
  5. the highest quality services at the most efficient cost.
