Welcome from the Director
Dear Skokie Resident,
Public health touches the lives of everyone, and Skokie is fortunate to have one of the few state-certified municipal health departments in Illinois. Our employees work every day to improve the quality of life in Skokie by ensuring safe food and water, maintaining vital birth and death records, controlling outbreaks of infectious diseases and protecting animals in the community. We also offer a number of prevention services, such as immunizations and health screenings, and promote healthy behaviors through our tobacco cessation seminars and other programs.
I hope that you find this website a helpful resource, and I invite you give us a call at 847/933-8252 if you have additional questions. We look forward to hearing from you!
