Welcome to the St. Lucie County Health Department

The Florida Legislature voted in 1996 to create the Florida Department of Health, which began operation on January 1, 1997--108 years after the state created the first State Board of Health in response to a yellow fever epidemic. The Department of Health operates 67 county health departments, which provide services directly to our communities, and the clinics that deliver health services to children with severe medical problems. On July 1, 1997, the program that oversees the quality of patient care and treatment statewide joins the department.
