A message from Health Director Frank Singleton, MSPH, MPA
Welcome to the City of Lowell Health Department. Our Mission is to preserve and maintain the City’s public health standards to both promote and to protect the health and wellness of the people within Lowell: residents, workers and visitors.
We strive to fulfill our mission through a wide range of public health programs that serve to target the prevention of communicable and chronic disease, environmental health, as well as emergency preparedness, emergency medical response and outreach health education in a variety of areas.
The Department provides school nursing services to some 14,000+ school children, utilizes public health nurses to promote immunization and to respond to reportable diseases of public health concern and manages the City contract with the City’s Ambulance provider, Trinity EMS.
Prevention of youth access to tobacco and the handling of workplace complaints on smoking are also the responsibility of the Lowell Health Department.
All local public health departments work with the Department of Public Health. Visit the link often for topics A to Z and to be kept up to date with what is going on in public health.
