A New Chapter at Cook County Department of Public Health
Exciting changes are taking place at CCDPH. We are reimagining and modernizing our health department. Our new brand identity reflects our commitment to putting the public in public health as we work together to build healthier communities in suburban Cook County.
We are delighted to share our 2023-25 Strategic Plan, which reimagines CCDPH as a modern health department and chief community health strategist that is proactive and responsive, mission-driven yet nimble, but most importantly, committed to partnering with the communities we serve.
Suburban residents and agencies can now easily identify and address health inequities using the Cook County Health Atlas, a searchable database with health data for 120 suburbs.
Do you have questions about how to apply for a job, permit, license or County Care? Perhaps you would like to file a complaint or report a food safety concern, disease outbreak, nuisance or dead bird. Or maybe you want to request medical or immunization records, information under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), or locate a phone number or clinic.

A chronic disease is any serious condition that lasts longer than three months. Chronic diseases typically can be treated, but not cured.
CCDPH prevents and controls the spread of communicable diseases by conducting disease surveillance, responding to outbreaks and making recommendations.
