The Mission of the Springdale Health Department is to monitor, preserve and improve the health of the people and the environment within the City of Springdale’s residential and business communities. By promoting disease prevention / health education programs and healthy lifestyle choices, we strive to improve the public health of our community.
The City of Springdale Award-winning Health Department provides a variety of Public Health-related services to the Springdale community. The Department provides inspection services in a multitude of areas such as Food Service Operations (restaurants), Retail Food Establishments (ex. United Dairy Farmers) and Public Swimming Pools and Spas. The Department also responds to citizen complaints when it comes to things such as work-place smoking violations, bed bugs sightings, and animals bites. Many of these services are broken down into two main areas: Environmental Health and Community Health. The Environmental Health services are the programs that oversee licenses and/or inspections in the community. Community Health services involve primarily the immunizations, routine health screenings, and other types of check-ups.
The Department consist of a full-time Health Commissioner, a full-time Public Health Nurse, and a full-time Health Sanitarian to deliver these services. The Health Commissioner oversees the daily operations of the Department and sees that the needs of the community are being met. The Public Health Nurse provides immunizations, blood glucose, cholesterol, and blood pressure checks and makes visits to many of the elderly citizens throughout the Springdale community. The Sanitarian conducts inspections of the local businesses, schools, hotel/motels, the City jail as well as provides food safety training opportunities for the employees of Springdale food establishments.
The Public Health Commissioner is appointed by the Springdale Board of Health in conjunction with the City Administration and reports directly to the City Administrator. The primary responsibility of the Commissioner is the general management, supervision, and oversight of the Health Department and its employees. The Commissioner is expected to provide leadership, direction, and guidance in the implementation of the department’s programs and services which are designed to preserve and improve the general health, welfare, and environment of the Springdale community. These programs and services are provided for persons living in, working in, and visiting the City of Springdale.
Currently, the position of Public Health Commissioner is vacant; however, the City has engaged an executive recruitment firm to assist with locating an individual to fill this vacancy.
