Health District Launches New Website

The Delaware General Health District launched their newly designed website late in 2017. The website offers residents an easier, more user-friendly way of viewing the wide variety of public health services offered through the Health District.  The Health District’s services and programs are listed into three separate categories: Wellness Services, Community Services and Environmental Services. Under Wellness Services residents can access several programs that clinic staff offers, such as immunizations, communicable disease investigations, newborn home visiting and other similar services. Community Services includes a large number of education programs in addition to birth and death certificates and community health data. Environmental Services is where residents can access a specific type of license or permit, whether it is from the food protection and public safety unit or from the residential services unit. This page also provides information about plumbing permits, solid waste and other environmental services.

The website provides not only aesthetic value but also simplifies the way users can access information. One new highly sought after feature by browsers was a mobile-friendly site. Majority of the population gathers their information on the internet from their smart phone, so making the site mobile-friendly was top priority during the redesign process. The Health District worked with local marketing group Holony Media to launch the new website. Residents are invited to view the website at DelawareHealth.org.
