The Health Department provides a range of programs including a Child Health Clinic held on the 4th Monday of each month, by appointment only, for those families who are uninsured or underinsured and have financial need. Please call 973-838-7200 ext. 237 to make an appointment. We are a NJFamilyCare site and have packets for distribution for uninsured, eligible families. New Jersey is also currently accepting applications from parents who find themselves uninsured and who meet the state's guidelines.
At various times of the year we provide screenings for both male and female cancer and skin cancer, SMAC blood testing, Flu immunizations and Rabies Clinics.

It is the health department that investigates all communicable diseases. We also inspect all restaurants and food establishments and follow up on complaints relating to them. Licenses for food establishments and permits for wells and septic systems, as well as the inspections required, originate in this office. Water quality analysis and reporting of all public bathing areas as well as health complaints are investigated by the registered environmental health officer.
