The mission of the Purchase District Health Department is to provide environmental, preventive, curative, and health maintenance services to area citizens. Our primary goal is to have individuals in the Purchase adopt habits and behaviors that support a long and productive life span. This goal can be reached by direct health care, health education and counseling, and enforcement of laws that protect health and the environment.
To enable our clients to achieve their optimal functional level, we provide quality, cost effective care to all clients served regardless of their race, color, religion, age, sex, economic status, handicap status, political beliefs, or national origin. We treat all clients with dignity and respect as we strive to help them.

Every five years the Division of Maternal and Child Health is required to conduct a needs assessment on issues facing mothers and children in the state. This year begins the next needs assessment in that cycle. Of course, the most pertinent input we need is from the community we serve, and that is who this survey is directed toward. Please take the survey online at: https://kdph.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_0whnmrJdAUWAbn7 or download a paper copy here!
