About Us

The Lake Cumberland District Health Department focuses on public and preventative health. We do so by offering on-site clinics, off-site programs and by engaging our communities to adopt health-focused policies and initiatives. Our mission is to, “…prevent illness and injury, promote good health practices and assure a safe environment.”

While pursuing our mission, we aspire toward excellence by endeavoring to practice according to the most contemporary and cutting edge public health practice models and standards.


The Lake Cumberland District Health Department is proud to announce that we received reaccreditation from the Public Health Accreditation Board for a period of five years on August 21, 2023. LCDHD received our initial five year accreditation on March 14, 2017. This achievement is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our entire organization, including our esteemed board members and committed staff. As we continue to strive for excellence in our work, we are honored by this recognition of our efforts to provide outstanding public health services to the communities we serve. We remain committed to upholding the highest standards of performance and look forward to continuing to provide exemplary services that meet the ever-changing needs of our communities.
