Ouray County Public Health Agency


The Ouray County Public Health Agency's mission is to promote and protect the health and environment of Ouray County residents. Our address is 302 Second Street, which is located on the corner of 3rd Avenue and 2nd Street in Ouray, Colorado.

Ouray County Public Health Agency is supported by residential taxes as well as state and federal funding through the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. We also have programs that are grant funded. There are several small private sector donations providing services for clients in our county.

The Public Health Agency administers programs that affect the county as a whole. We work to communicate, educate, and offer services that will provide a healthy safe environment to live and work in.

Programs that are made available to our residents are Communicable Disease Control; Immunization Program; Women, Infants and Children Nutritional Services; Well-Child Clinics; Homemaker Services for residents 60 years and older; and Emergency Preparedness Planning. We provide collaborative services with our surrounding counties where it best serves our populations, such as restaurants inspection and water quality evaluation.
