  • About the Public Health Department

    Dr. Eric G. Walsh, MD, MPHFor 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 Pasadena Public Health Department exists to ensure and promote a healthy community with healthy people and to work with others to assure opportunities for optimal health for present and future generations. Health is broadly defined to mean both the absence of disease, and the presence of well-being — physical, social, economic, mental and spiritual.
