About Winneshiek County Public Health Nursing Service
Winneshiek County Public Health Nursing Service has been proudly serving the residents of Winneshiek County for over half a century with their public health and home health care needs. This agency is dedicated to maintaining the health of our community through communicable disease surveillance, safe water and sanitation issues, and prevention of health problems. We are an official Home Health Agency, certified as a participating agency under the Health Insurance Benefits Program XVIII and XIX (Medicare and Medicaid).
Winneshiek County Public Health Nursing Service is governed by the Winneshiek County Board of Health, which consists of 5 individuals who donate their time in service to the county. As a county agency, we are also under the wing of the local Board of Supervisors, one of whom serves on the Board of Health. The Board of Health determines agency policy, controls the budget, and monitors health issues in the county.
Winneshiek County Public Health has been a pillar of the community since 1937.
