Public Health

Public Health is the first line of defense in maintaining and improving the public’s health status.

A productive, economically sound society relies on a safe, healthy population. Since its inception in the 1950s, Tarrant County Public Health (TCPH) has been a valuable local resource by providing services aimed at promoting, achieving and maintaining a healthy standard of living to all Tarrant County residents. With a client base and scope of services as diverse as the county's population, a dedicated staff of more than 425 public health professionals and annual funding resources totaling approximately $60 million, TCPH services truly touch everyone, every day, everywhere.
