The Wauwatosa Health Department (WHD) is a Level 3 Health Department that exists to protect the health and safety of the entire Wauwatosa community by promoting health, preventing disease, and reducing or eliminating health risk factors. Although some Wauwatosans have not had direct contact with their health department, many of the improvements that prolong life and protect health and safety are directly related to public health measures. Examples include safe food, clean air, pure drinking water, clean pools, childhood vaccines, and chronic disease risk reduction through the promotion of healthy behaviors. According to Wisconsin Statute ch. 251.02(2), counties with a population of 500,000 or more must establish a local health department. Since there is no county health department in Milwaukee County, health departments are maintained at the municipal level.

Non-Office Hours
If you have an urgent public health need during non-office hours, please call the Wauwatosa Police Department non-emergency number at (414) 471-8430, and the appropriate public health authorities will be notified.
