About Kendall County Health Department

The Kendall County Health Department provides a wide array of services to protect and promote the public's health.

Established in 1966, the Health Department is an experienced health and human services provider in Kendall County.  Because of the unique structure of the Health Department, many services are available to community members. The mission of the Kendall County Health Department is to promote physical health, mental health, environmental health, protect the community’s health, prevent disease, and promote family economic self-sufficiency through both person based services and population based programs.

The Kendall County Health Department offers a full range of health and human services for all ages. These services include blood pressure screening, energy assistance, home weatherization, immunization clinic, mental health treatment, nutritional education, parent education, self sufficiency supports, substance abuse treatment, tuberculosis testing, well testing, and eldercare wellness services. The Health Department also has strong community relationships (under the same roof of its own site) with the Court Appointed Special Advocates (for children and families), with the Child Advocacy Center, with the Veterans Assistance Commission, and with the Kane County Workforce Development, as these meaningful services are critical to the well-being of many we serve.

Cultural competence and stakeholder engagement are integrated into our community interaction processes and have a positive impact on our planning/services. With self-sufficiency as a constant goal, the Kendall County Health Department has both significant experience and an ideal service structure. This experience and structure are optimal for bringing individualized and robust supports around each and every individual/family we are privileged to serve.

The Health Department is governed by a Board of Health. The Health Department also hosts a Community Action Advisory Board, a Mental Health Advisory Board, an Environmental Advisory Board, and a Community Health Advisory Board.
