Details: The Galveston County Health District (GCHD) is a distinct, non-taxing governmental entity. GCHD is a public health district (not to be confused with a taxing hospital district), addressing the ten (10) essential public health functions outlined in state statute. As a district, the public health services under GCHD's umbrella are governed by a policy-making board, the Galveston County United Board of Health (UBOH). Representative board members are appointed by Galveston County and cities. It is important to note that UBOH members do not oversee Coastal Health & Wellness (the primary care services also under GCHD's umbrella) which have a separate governing board by federal funding requirements.
Details: Our mission is to provide essential services, resources, and tools for close to 15,000 economically disadvantaged, uninsured, and working poor individuals and families a year to sustain themselves and to become members of a community where each person is valued.
