Babies sleep safest Alone, on their Backs, in a Crib for nighttime, nap time and every time.

Sleep-related infant death is the leading cause of infant mortality from one month to one year of age.

Sleep-related infant death can result from unintentional suffocation/strangulation. The best way to prevent sleep-related deaths is for all parents and caregivers to provide a safe sleeping environment for infants.

To prevent sleep related infant deaths, practice your ABC’s for every sleep.

Community Health Is Our Mission

Welcome to the Webster County Health Unit!

Public health touches every person every day. From clean air and water to safe food to immunizations that protect us from disease, our staff provide excellent, customer focused, confidential programs and services at little to no cost.

We make it our mission to preserve and protect public health in our community.

We are a local public health agency, a Missouri political subdivision, and tax exempt as a government organization. Our annual operating budget is approximately $900,000 with income from personal property tax, state and federal grants and fees for service. Services are provided to all Webster County residents without discrimination and no one is denied services due to an inability to pay.

 

The Health Unit Board of Directors meets monthly, on the last Monday of each month at 3:30. The Board meets at the Health Unit (233 E. Washington in Marshfield), and meetings are open to the public. Time is made available at every meeting for members of the public to address the board.
