About the Public Health Department
For 120 years, the Pasadena Public Health Department has been responsible for helping protect, maintain and improve the health of the Pasadena community. The City of Pasadena is one of only three cities in the state of California that maintains its own independent local health jurisdiction with responsibility for a wide variety of services that support the three core public health functions of assessment, policy development and assurance.
The City of Pasadena Public Health Department is dedicated to the physical, social and mental well-being of all who live, work, worship, learn and play in Pasadena.
The Pasadena Public Health Department will lead the city to be the model of health excellence and community wellness.
The Pasadena Public Health Department is committed to building trusting relationships with the community we serve; providing high-quality services; making health services accessible; instilling the value of public health; and creating opportunities that foster health professional excellence.
