Here at the Defiance County General Health District (DCGHD), we are working towards seeking national accreditation through the Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB). PHAB Accreditation has set standards and measures in order to determine our performance. We want to advance our quality and performance within each of our departments in order to better serve the Defiance County community members. We are very excited about the years to come with seeking national accreditation and how this process will enhance the health department!

All nursing services are by appointment only, please call the nursing division at (419) 784-3818.

The mission of the Defiance County General Health District is to prevent disease, promote and protect the health of the Defiance County community.
