Posted:

 LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) -The La Crosse County Health Department has passed the state's health department review. 

As a result, the La Crosse County Health Department will maintain their Level III status.

“Local public health staff help make their community a healthier place in which to live, play, work and learn,” said Karen McKeown, State Health Officer. “The department has an actively engaged and supportive Health and Human Services Board and does an excellent job of collaborating with community partners to improve the health status of La Crosse County residents.”

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services is required to formally review the operations of all 88 Wisconsin local health departments at the county or municipality level at least every five years. The review establishes the health department as a level I, II or III agency. A level I agency meets the minimum requirements and a level III agency meets the maximum requirements established for a local health department.
