Wallowa County Public Health Services

Message to Wallowa County Public Health Clients and Partners

The Wallowa County Board of Commissioners voted unanimously in April 2018 to transfer its local public health authority to the state agency. As a result, Oregon Health Authority will provide limited public health services. By law, the county was required to pass an ordinance before the transfer could happen. While legally the transfer does not occur until October 13, 2018, Wallowa County will no longer have a local public health administrator as of May 1, 2018.
