Established in 1839, the City of Manchester Health Department (MHD) is an innovative and proactive local health department grounded in the principles and application of the core public health functions. Sixty full and part-time staff work within four Branches: Neighborhood and Family Health, School Health, Infectious Disease, and Environmental Public Health/Emergency Response.

Please view our organizational chart and contact information for our senior leaders.

With a total budget of $7,000,000 and 45% of its revenue from outside funds, MHD has a strong fiscal track record and capacity to develop resources beyond the municipal budget. In 2016, with MHD leadership serving as a backbone for the community, the City of Manchester was one of seven communities selected to receive the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s “Culture of Health Prize”.

The MHD also serves as the fiscal agent for the federally qualified health center (FQHC) “Healthcare for the Homeless” mobile community health team and contracts with the City’s primary health care FQHC to staff social workers and community health workers in several of the City’s most impoverished public schools. Through public health preparedness funding, the MHD runs the NH Institute for Local Public Health Practice to provide professional development in core competencies to health care and public health providers statewide.

The Department is also striving to become the “chief health strategist” of the Manchester community and a high achieving local governmental health department that balances the provision of traditional public health services with more “upstream” strategies which focus on the social determinants of health across priority neighborhoods and targeted populations.


Our mission is “to improve the health of individuals, families, and the community through disease prevention, health promotion, and protection from environmental threats” with an aim to work both across its Branches and with other community partners to improve the public’s health.


Our vision statement is “to be a healthy community where the public can enjoy a high quality of health in a clean environment, enjoy protection from public health threats, and can access high quality health care.” This includes our Department’s ability to anticipate disease and conditions in the community before they occur through the use of timely and relevant data and technology.  As the chief health strategist and neighborhood catalyst, we are moving from being a public health service provider to the community’s strategic planner for population-based goals.
