 WELCOME to Platte County Public Health located in Wheatland, Wyoming!
Our mission is to protect and promote the health of citizens of Platte County. The services we provide are population based. We focus on improving the health status of the population rather than the treatment of individuals. These services are based on three core Public Health principles:
~Public Health agencies assess the community health status and determine whether the community has adequate resources to address the identified problems.
~Use the data gathered through the assessment to develop health policies and programs.
~Assure that necessary, high quality, effective services are available. However, "assure" does not always mean to provide, but to see that services are available.


General Information:
Open 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Closed for most government holidays.

Appointments strongly encouraged for all services we provide. We will accomodate walk-ins as much as possible depending on nurse staff availble. 

Employment Opportunity: Platte County Public Health is accepting applications for a part-time Public Health Response Coordinator (PHRC). This position will be open until filled. Applicants must possess great communication and interpersonal skills, public speaking experience, and the ability to travel. Knowledge of incident command systems, emergency management and planning, strategic national stockpile, and public health core functions are helpful. Hourly wage is commensurate with experience. IS-200, 400, 700, and 800 preferred, but we are willing to train. 

Resumes will NOT be accepted as an application, but may be included. For application forms and additional information, contact or visit the Platte County Public Health office.
