Welcome to VCPH

Our dedicated and diverse team of over 400 staff work to prevent epidemics, spread of disease, and injuries; promote and encourage healthy living opportunities; respond to disasters and assist communities in recovery; and assure the quality and accessibility of preventive and health care services throughout the County. It is our mission to protect and promote the health and well-being of everyone in Ventura County. We strive to improve health by promoting safe and healthy communities for all to LIVE, WORK, LEARN, and PLAY.

Achieving health equity is one of our top priorities. Working collaboratively to find solutions to support everyone to live a long and healthy life no matter our age, gender, culture, language or sexual orientation is important. Because socio-economic factors and the built or physical environment are estimated to contribute about 50% to how well and how long we live, we are committed to addressing the social determinants of health in collaboration with our community partners and residents.

We look forward to working with you to realize our collective vision of becoming the healthiest county in the nation.
