Public health is entering a new era, and the OKC-County Health Department is proud to be among those who are leading the way. We aim to reduce chronic diseases by keeping our citizens well instead of dealing with illness after people become sick.
In this section of the website, you will find many of OCCHD’s clinical services, which you can see in the menu on the left side of this page. In addition to clinical services, you will also find services for children, heart disease reduction, and diabetes prevention.

Filing a complaint with OCCHD is voluntary. However, without the information requested, OCCHD may be unable to proceed with your complaint. We will use the information you provide to determine if the we have jurisdiction and, if so, how we will process your complaint.
